Dr. Kathleen Nagle, Asst. Professor, Department of Speech-Language Pathology, is a recipient of the Advancing Academic-Research Careers (AARC) Award. Each year, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) awards new faculty in higher education in support of their academic-research endeavors in the field of communication sciences and disorders (CSD). The AARC Award is intended to support mentored teaching and research activities, clinical practice research, implementation science and interprofessional education and interprofessional practice (IPE/IPP).
As part of this award, Dr. Nagle will receive mentoring in teaching from Dr. Vikram Dayalu (SLP) and Dr. Doreen Stiskal (PT). One of her main teaching objectives is to implement the Generalized Empirical Method (GEM), an approach to encouraging critical thinking that integrates the Catholic philosophy of education. GEM is taught in SHU's Praxis program, presented by the Office of Mission and Ministry and the Center for Vocation and Servant Leadership. Dr. Nagle will also receive mentoring in qualitative and mixed methods research from Dr. Kathryn Yorkston at the University of Washington, with the goal of obtaining NIH grant funding to continue her research in how listeners adapt to speech produced by individuals with communication disorders and differences.
