To enhance my research and professional knowledge, I routinely read a number of scholarly journals. Of course, reading journals is not the only means by which to increase one’s knowledge in the field and to accumulate continuing education units. As I write this column (in mid-July), [just made my hotel and airline reservations for the ASHA convention in San Diego. I have been attending the convention since 1989, and I still look forward to it.
For me, the ASHA convention represents the old and the new. The old. It affords me the opportunity to connect with colleagues from around the country and the world. We renew bonds, forge new projects, and share ideas about teaching. It also allows me to see the progress researchers have made in the past year and inform the research that I read in the journals, I do in my own lab, and 1 present in the classes I teach. The new. The most important aspect of the ASHA convention is the cutting-edge research and clinical methods presented at the largest conference for speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and speech and hearing scientists. Given the expansion of the knowledge base and the scopes of practice in speech-language pathology and audinlogy just since 1989 when I began attending the ASHA convention, it is increasingly important to attend conferences and conventions such as this. Although I regularly read scholarly journals, the ability to talk to prominent researchers and skilled practitioners about their work adds a unique dimension to my professional education.
