This course provides an overview of audiology for consumer needs. Hearing Heath professionals and their scopes of practice will be explored. Learners will develop an understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the hearing mechanism and be able to describe how sound travels from its source to its interpretation by the brain. 21 of the most common etiologies which may cause hearing loss will be examined. Students will learn how to interpret basic audiologic information including pure tone results, speech audiometry and impedance results.
This course will be online. Learning approaches will include articles and book chapters, case studies, real time discussion, use of discussion forum and power point presentations. Projects which foster experiential learning will be incorporated for many objectives.
