How many affiliates does your SIG have now, as opposed to a year ago?
In 2014, SIG 10 had 567 affiliates, up from 550 in 2013.
Is there an important, new issue surrounding your SIG’s subject matter right now?
SIG 10 is excited to support ASHA and our affiliates with regard to several topics. John Folkins, SIG 10 associate coordinator, serves on a committee exploring the clinical doctorate in speech-language pathology. Additionally, SIG 10’s most recent Perspectives focuses on interprofessional education, a topic affiliates requested for CEU focus and SIG discussion.
What upcoming events related to or sponsored by your SIG should everyone know about?
Recently, SIG 10 was involved in a webinar focused on the importance of undergraduate research. In the live webinar, Jennifer Friberg and John Folkins presented on how undergraduate students benefit from research experiences and provided ideas for faculty to infuse research experiences into the undergraduate curriculum. You can find this webinar here.
Which of your recent Perspectives articles is a must-read for communication sciences and disorders professionals, and why?
We recommend two articles from Perspectives on Issues in Higher Education. The first, by Richard I. Zraick, Ana Claudia Harten and Fran Hagstrom, is from our most recent issue and discusses interprofessional education as an emerging option for colleges and universities to best prepare students for clinical practice. The second, by Patti Solomon-Rice and Betty Yu, discusses alternate pathways to a terminal research degree for CSD faculty and prospective faculty, which is timely and insightful given the well-documented shortage of CSD faculty.
