Inspiring, motivating and supporting learning for students from diverse backgrounds through Australia’s the first blended online Master of Speech Pathology

Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


The Speech Pathology team received the CSU Executive Dean’s Teaching award in 2021 for their development and implementation of the Master of Speech Pathology (MaSP) course. The MaSP is recognised as a world-leading blended online professional training course for speech-language pathologists (SLPs). The MaSP was the first Australian blended online speech pathology (SP) course to be awarded the maximum five-year course accreditation with Speech Pathology Australia, the national governing body for speech pathologists in Australia. Throughout this course the speech pathology team applies the Charles Sturt online learning model (2018) and an evidence-based constructivist approach to learning and teaching to deliver an innovative, high-quality student-centred university experience. Student and community feedback on the MaSP consistently identifies a rewarding and flexible student experience that prepares sought after work-ready graduates.

Abbreviated titleConnected and Curious: teaching for inclusion and engagement
OtherCSEdX is a key professional learning event that celebrates best practices, explores our potential; and challenges us to provide every learner with a learning experience that is connected, relevant, thought-provoking, and future focussed.
It is the place where teaching academics can share and collaboratively learn about teaching practice: strategies, pedagogies, technologies, and approaches. The sessions offer the opportunity to explore ways to teach and to connect with peers to ‘talk teaching’.
It is the place to share the ways we improve our work through scholarly activity, bring discipline research into our teaching, and use student voices to guide teaching decisions.
CSEdX will drive innovative teaching and learning for 2023 because it offers an opportunity to bring together all staff who are connected to student learning: faculty academics and divisional staff who support the design of learning, or who lead student learning for 3 days of collective thinking and celebrating. It can be a flagship event at the university bringing together professional learning foci from across the year and shaping collective consideration of a conceptual direction for scholarly focus for the next 12 months- guiding the planning for what we need to be focussing on in teaching and scholarly activity for teaching.
