This course is designed to provide undergraduate students with a culminating learning experience in their Senior year. The course focuses on decision making in relation to how bias and noise can lead to errors in decision making, ethical principles in healthcare emphasizing principles of making ethical arguments, and teaching students how to write peer review critiques of articles in CSD. The class will explore how to identify sources of error, how to measure them, and how to reduce them through systematic audits of noise and bias. The class will include case studies and examples from CSD (both audiology and speech-language pathology). Students will engage in reading peer reviewed articles from CSD and ethical decision making. Students are expected to engage in classroom discussion and be involved in formal writing on scholarly topics covered in the course. This information is intended to provide you with advanced knowledge of decision making, ethics, and evidence-based practice in CSD to prepare you for a career as an Audiologist or a Speech-Language Pathologist. It is designed to provide foundational information to prepare students for graduate school or other healthcare related activities. The course format will include lectures, small-group activities, quizzes, and weekly writing assignments. Students completing this course will satisfy the writing intensive within major requirement. The writing assignments will receive feedback and students are required to revise each paper accordingly in order to create a final portfolio that includes an introduction, the original paper and its revision, and a conclusion.
