Accent modification course available during spring three-week session for SLP master’s students
18 Nov 2020 By Kelcey Buck
After the coronavirus pandemic forced their study abroad trip to be canceled last May, Alicia Davis and Judy Harvey created an elective class for the Summer 2020 session to teach Husker speech-language pathology master’s students about the accent modification services they would have been providing in Costa Rica. Now, they’re again offering the course during the three-week spring session that runs Jan. 4-22, 2021.
Davis, a lecturer and clinical supervisor, and Harvey, an assistant professor of practice and clinical supervisor, wanted the students who were set to travel to Costa Rica last May to have an opportunity to gain both the accent modification skills and the credit hours they would have earned on the trip. That summer course was so well received – with 19 students participating – that Davis and Harvey thought it would be beneficial to offer it again during the three-week session in January.
“Our current season has given us the chance to broaden our view of adventure,” Davis said. “Enrolling in the Accent Modification course will be an opportunity for students to ‘travel abroad’ without leaving the comfort of their remote learning spots. Dr. Harvey and I are excited to see where this spring’s session takes us.”
Students have until Nov. 29 to register for the Accent Modification course (SLPA 990). More information can be found by clicking here.
