Season 6: Episode 5: Join us on a reflective journey with Dr. David Luterman, Ed.D., CCC-SLP, professor emeritus at Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts. In this episode, hosted by Sara MacIntyre, M.A., CCC-SLP, Dr. Luterman delves into his remarkable 60-year clinical teaching career. Starting with his own educational journey, he shares profound lessons and euphemisms that have significantly influenced his teaching philosophy.

Discover the evolution of Dr. Luterman's teaching framework as he discusses his immersive approach to empowering students in the field of speech-language pathology and audiology to develop counseling skills in a way that empowers them to take control of their own learning, mitigates against the development of self-consciousness, and prioritizes non-judgmental, active listening.

In the concluding moments, Dr. Luterman reflects on the legacy he aspires to leave in our field and the impact he hopes to be remembered for. This conversation will leave you reflecting on your own teaching styles, educational journeys, and (hopeful) legacy in a wonderful way.
