The seventh biennial Communication Science and Disorders Teaching Conference at the University of Pittsburgh, which takes place June 15-17, 2017, will address the art and science of teaching counseling in the classroom and clinic. The three-day conference will give audiology faculty and clinical instructors the opportunity to discuss best practice in teaching counseling and benefit from resources shared by the conference faculty, which includes sample course or clinical handouts, practicum strategies, reference lists, take-home assignments, lab exercises, and practical exams. The program also includes breakout and poster sessions.
