Kudos to Communication Sciences and Disorders graduate students, who completed the SimuCase program with the highest percentage accuracy in the country. SimuCase is an online program that offers simulation-based learning for students to gain skills in observation, assessment, and intervention practices for virtual patients. This allows students to gain experience with low incidence populations that they may otherwise have limited opportunities to interact with.
Kudos to Jodi Galvan, in the Department of Communication, who has successfully completed the rigorous 36-week Canvas Certified Educator (CCE) Program through Instructure (Canvas). This program offers four core classes (Foundational Frameworks, Engagement Strategies, Personalized Learning, Transformational Practices) and two elective classes (Jodi participated in Leading with Canvas, and Leveraging Canvas for Professional Learning). The ultimate goal of this training is to support both the teacher and learner's voice to express learning and create learning experiences in Canvas in ways that would not exist without the use of technology.
