Educational Teleconferencing: Continuing Professional Education in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology.
Showalter, Robert G.
The paper describes the efforts of Purdue University to meet the continuing professional education (CPE) needs of professionals serving the communicatively handicapped through audio, video, and computer teleconferencing. Two types of interactive television programs are currently provided: videotapes of invited speakers and participant discussion and graduate telecourses made available to campuses that do not have formal training programs in communicative disorders. Audioteleconferencing efforts have included a project to develop a speaker telephone CPE model for professionals serving handicapped school children in Indiana. Evaluation data suggest participant satisfaction with the speaker telephone CPE format and a 55% saving over the information delivered in the traditional face-to-face mode. Computer teleconferencing has been undertaken via SpecialNet, a national computer-based instant-communication network accessed by telephone. (CL)
