TWU-TETN PROGRAM DRAWS 150 GRADUATE STUDENTS TO DENTON CAMPUS

Texas Woman’s University’s Texas Educational Telecommunications Network (TETN) program welcomed 150 graduate students from throughout the state to the Denton campus May 28 to June 2, as the students kickoff their pursuit of a master’s degree in speech-language pathology.

Participants attended classes and completed homework assignments during the weeklong intense learning session at TWU.

The students then returned home to complete their degree coursework by attending classes at statewide Education Service Centers and taking online classes. In addition to their distance learning classes, students will observe and participate in speech-pathology exercises in local school districts, medical centers, nursing homes, rehabilitation agencies and specialty clinics. The students are expected to graduate in August 2008.

The Texas Education Agency is funding the TWU-TETN program to address the shortage of speech-language pathologists in Texas public schools, which is expected to reach a deficit of 7,353 by the year 2012. The 150 participants were from 142 school districts in Texas, who are sponsoring their participation.

The TWU-TETN program offers a master’s degree in speech-language pathology through a combination of video conferencing and computerized instruction, as well as clinical experiences. Participating Education Service Centers assist students by providing distance education classroom sites and additional program coordination. Accepted applicants begin the program by attending one week of courses on the TWU campus in Denton and then complete their coursework at participating Education Service Centers and through online coursework.

For more information about the program, call 8-1-2025 or visit www.twu.edu/hs/comms/COMS_SLP_TETN_Program.htm.
