Much has happened since our last Division 10 Newsletter. Our committee structure has been formed and committees are busy organizing and developing plans for the upcoming year. Here are a few highlights.
Meryl Barrow is coordinating a membership drive. If you know of potential members, send Meryl a note: meryl.barrow@liu.edu
Division 10, the Academic Affairs Board, and the Council of Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders are jointly sponsoring three important sessions at the ASHA Convention in San Francisco:
  1. The Thursday session on National Issues will discuss the national movement to place greater emphasis on the scholarship of teaching. The keynote speaker will be John Webster, Pew Scholar, from the University of Washington. Webster will discuss the driving forces behind this movement and what it means to academic programs in speech-language pathology and audiology. Ro Scudder and I will also participate in the discussion. Communication Disorders faculty from campuses that are participating in the AAHE/Carnegie Campus Conversation project are invited to share ideas and experiences. Over the past several years, we, as a discipline, have demonstrated that we are poised for this discussion. We have many mechanisms in place to carry the discussion forward and develop concrete plans for how to re-conceptualize best practices for preparing professionals for the challenges they face in the future.

  2. Recommendations for transitioning to new standards for entry-level practice will be explored by a panel.

  3. A caucus will be held on Saturday to provide a venue for discussing the impact of changes in health care on students externship opportunities. The time and location will be announced at a later date. Watch for news on the email list.
