Doctoral students in science disciplines spend countless hours learning how to conduct cutting-edge research but very little time learning to communicate the nature and significance of their science to people outside their field. To narrow this disparity, we created an unusual course titled Communicating Science for doctoral science trainees at Rutgers University. Our goal was to help students develop an advanced ability to communicate their research clearly and accurately and to emphasize its value and significance to diverse audiences...

Falls and fall-induced injuries are major global public health problems, and sensory input impairment in older adults results in significant limitations in feedback-type postural control. A haptic-based biofeedback (BF) system can be used for augmenting somatosensory input in older adults, and the application of this BF system can increase the objectivity of the feedback and encourage comparison with that provided by a trainer. Nevertheless, an optimal BF system that focuses on interpersonal feedback for balance training in older adults has not been proposed...

OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to test whether cue utilisation might be employed as a tool to assess the diagnostic skills of audiologists. The utilisation of cues is a characteristic of expertise and critical for successful diagnoses in clinical settings. However, neither in training nor in practice, is there a means by which the diagnostic skills of audiologists can be assessed objectively and reliably. DESIGN: The study comprised a pre-post training evaluation, controlling for prior exposure to the diagnostic testing tool...

PURPOSE: There may be unintended consequences of broadening the competencies across which health professions trainees are assessed. This study was conducted to determine if such broadening influences the formative guidance assessors provide to trainees and to test whether sequential collection of competency-specific assessment can overcome setbacks of simultaneous collection. METHOD: A randomized between-subjects experimental design, conducted in Toronto and Halifax, Canada, in 2016-17 with paramedic educators experienced in observing/rating, in which observers' focus was manipulated...
