Abstract

Speech science education has changed dramatically over the past 20 years. New technologies in the laboratory, clinic, and classroom have influenced what and how we teach. The Internet has proven to be an effective resource, yet information gleaned must be viewed with a critical eye. Speech science educators are typically professors with extensive research training, but little or no training in how to teach. It is common, therefore, for professors to teach in the manner in which they were taught. The traditional lecture format class has been superseded by teaching methods that encourage active learning and collaboration between students. As speech science education adapts to include new technologies and by embracing new instructional models, students will be better prepared to bridge science and clinical practice.
