This is the first of a two-part report concerning Project SIMPLE , a federally-funded project (U.S. Department of Education, P116B031062) linking Saint Xavier University’s Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders with colleagues at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The project specifically addresses collaboration among content experts in communication disorders and instructional design specialists, and is dedicated to building interactive learning experiences for students of speech-language pathology preparing to work with adults who have aphasia.
SIMPLE’s objective is to develop and measure the effectiveness of innovative instructional methods for higher education. To date, the project has produced several reusable learning tools (RLTs) that address the core of a mastery-based instructional model. These tools allow educators to develop standalone routines that individualize learning via a well-documented instructional paradigm. Project SIMPLE RLTs have been designed for application across a wide variety disciplines.
