1 La Salle University s Answer to the SLP Shortage The Pre-SLP Program
2 Pre Pre-SLP Program The Master s Program at La Salle was recently accredited More than 1500 potential students inquired about our program Many did not have the necessary prerequisites to pursue a master s in Speech-Language Pathology Many of the students were working professionals and could not go to school during the day.
3 How We Began The project was funded by a private foundation Hired an Instructional Designer, Juliet Fink, Ed.M 11 courses were identified as key prerequisites The Instructional Designer worked with faculty to adapt face-to-face courses to develop appropriate courses for an online format. Faculty was compensated for their time and efforts in developing courses.
4 Why the Pre-SLP Program is a Model Online Program The Niche: Few schools offered these courses online The Program: We could start programmatically by offering a suite of 11 courses. The Market Demand: The field desperately needs qualified applicants The Student Population: Students looking for these courses tend to be older, are working full-time, have families, and needed flexibility.
5 What do we mean by Online Courses? WebCT Allows Online Courses to Have: Multiple Modes of Communication Restricted access Tests and Quizzes PPT, Word, Websites, PDFs Assignment Dropbox Video and audio. Hyperlinks to the Web.
9 Growing By Leaps and Bounds We ve gone from 4 to 55 Pre-SLP students in 6 semesters. We ve sold 301 credits this semester alone; 36 of these credits are taken by our graduate students. We have students from NY, CA, AZ, and Canada.
10 My How We ve Grown! Semester Spring 05 Summer 05 Fall 05 Spring 06 Summer 06 Fall 06 Totals: # of Courses offered Credits Sold
11 Eye to the Future Maintain and Enhance Quality Address Faculty Constraints New Technology
12 The Pre-SLP Program has helped the University Only 2 courses online The SLP faculty had little WebCT experience No training or materials for developing or teaching completely online. 11 Pre-SLP courses fully online Faculty who have online teaching experience and ENJOY it credits sold for online courses since Spring 05 A waiting list ready to start taking online courses.
13 We believe the Pre-SLP program offers a pathway to become an SLP for non-traditional students Helping to address the critical shortage of SLPs
14 Ending thoughts from our Students "This type of class lends nicely to those that do not live close to the university and that have full time jobs and/or families. It gives them the freedom to get the work completed on their own time schedule."
15 Ending thoughts from our Students "I really enjoyed the class and feel as though I learned just as much maybe even more than going to a face to face class."
16 Ending thoughts from our Students Discipline yourself! There are no classes to attend so the amount of time you put into this course rests solely on you. Don t wait until late in the week to check in on the discussions. You could fall easily behind.
17 Ending thoughts from our Students Discussion boards were excellent. They were easy to understand and fun to participate in. I think they are essential in an online course.
18 Ending thoughts from our Students I enjoyed taking the course online. There really isn t anything about the lectures that I didn t like.
