CDSP 7931 Concepts of Research 3

(1 hour)
This course will continue to study techniques of research commonly utilized in the field of communication disorders with the goal of improving each student’s ability to be educated consumers and producers of research. We will focus on evaluating the quality of research articles so as to understand the strength of evidence for topics such as assessment, prognosis, and treatment in communication sciences and disorders. These skills are crucial both for those who intend to conduct research in their future careers, as well as those who intend to employ evidence-based practice as clinicians. The course will utilize a mixture of lecture, written assignments, and small group activity and discussion. Additionally, students will continue to work on their Graduate Research Paper required in the master’s program by executing their projects, writing up the results, and writing a draft of the discussion. We will continue to focus on the ethics of research, with a specific emphasis on publication and dissemination issues.
