MedSLP Summit FREE-May 17th-20th

Hello!

Like 2020, 2021 has been quite the year so far!

We understand that academic programs have been slowly getting back to more “normal” schedules and are gradually returning to a sense of pre-COVID order.

Congratulations on making things work during a very difficult time.

We wanted to take a moment to make your program aware of The MedSLP Summit.

The MedSLP Summit is a chance for your students to listen to up to 10 hours (20 thirty minute presentations) of evidence-based material about multiple topics in the medical SLP world.

And are you ready for this?

The event is completely FREE (AND NO you do NOT have to be a MedSLP Collective member to register)!

We hope that you will pass this information on to your students and even your faculty!

Please join us for The MedSLP Summit on May 17th-21st from 8:00-10:00 PM EST.

This virtual summit will consist of 20 short presentations presented by 20 of our mentors.

Come climb the evidence-based mountain with us!

It will be a fun, energizing, and positive experience for your students.

This link will register them and they can check out the amazing speaker line up as well:

Warm Regards,

WHAT WOULD I DO IN A TLC?

TLCs are meant to help you support your classroom learning, combine your personal goals with your academic goals, and create a learning community. If you join a TLC, you’ll be paired with 6-15 fellow students and 1 tutor-facilitator from our center. You will work together to decode academic and cultural norms, practice language acquisition, and develop collaboration skills. Your group will meet once a week on zoom for an hour for 7 weeks (weeks of Apr 12-May 24), however, some groups may start earlier depending on how quickly they fill up and can continue meeting after the first week of March if they so desire

 

TLCs can cover many topics, including:

  • Reading difficult course texts
  • Participating in class discussions and activities
  • Understanding assignments/feedback
  • Interpreting classroom and cultural norms
