As any professional who has served as a clinical supervisor for a student clinician knows, organization and communication are key elements in enhancing the experience for both the supervisor and the student involved. Sometimes working out the logistics of various supervisory tasks can use as much time as discussing clinical performance issues. Since the undergraduate speech-language pathology program at Columbia College does not have an on-campus speech and hearing center, all clinical experiences take place with cooperating clinicians off-campus in a variety of settings. This leads to many challenges in organizing schedules, travel, and paperwork, as well as communicating with students, cooperating clinicians, and other faculty members. To address these challenges, faculty at Columbia College decided to purchase and use personal digital assistants (PDAs) to help make clinical supervision a more effective and efficient experience for both students and supervisors.
