CSD majors are required to take CSD 701, which is their graduate research course. As part of this course, they are asked to prepare and present a poster to be presented to a panel of judges. This is where we hope you come in. We need alumni judges to step forward to volunteer to serve as poster judges. Judges will earn ASHA CEUs in conjunction with a training course provided before each poster session. This course provides a guideline for learners to evaluate Critically Appraised Topics (CAT); including elements of a relevant clinical question, evaluation of the systematic search procedures, appraisal of research literature and interpretation of results. 

Each judge is asked to attend at least one session of the poster fair and judge a certain number of assigned posters (it’s normally around 5-6 posters, but it depends on how many volunteers step forward) using a rubric that will be provided. It’s a wonderful opportunity to interact with bright students about interesting topics.

Every student will display their poster on Thursday, December 5 at one of two sessions.You only need to be present for one training course and one poster session. 

Course 1:

  • 9:30am-11am - Training course
  • 11am-1:30pm - Poster session 1

Course 2:

  • 12:30pm-2pm - Training course
  • 2pm-4:30pm - Poster Session 2

If you have the opportunity, we hope you will volunteer to support our students by providing valuable feedback on their work.  We will make every effort to match you with CATs that fit with your general area of expertise and interest, if you make that known to us in the registration form.

Please let us know whether you will be able to serve as a judge this year and which course you will be attending by registering at this link by November 20th. 

 To earn ASHA CEUs you must: 

  • Bring your ASHA number the day of the course 
  • Complete ASHA CEU form the day of the course 
  • Be present for the entire course. No partial credit will be provided.

This course is offered for 0.15 ASHA CEU’s (Instructional Level: Intermediate, Content Area: Professional, Subject Area: 7010 Service Delivery Associated with Speech / Language / Swallowing and Hearing).  

For additional course information, please e-mail Caroline Arthur, Director of Alumni Relations. We are always so grateful for the connection to our alumni, and would love having you back on campus to hear about the interesting research our students are doing. Thanks so much for your time!
