University placement information
Each university will have resources to support you in your role as a Clinical Educator. The resources may include a manual, course outline and practical resources to facilitate student learning. Some universities allow access to additional resources electronically (online journals, discussion boards, electronic newsletters). Another important role of the university Clinical Coordinator is to facilitate the process for resolving difficult situations during a clinical placement.
In this series of videos, Simone Howells, Griffith University Speech Pathology Clinical Education Coordinator, explains the ways that the university can help with pre-placement planning, the support that the university Clinical Education Coordinator can provide to Clinical Educators and when a Clinical Educator should contact the university to initiate early intervention with a student on placement.
