Development of an Internet-based course in hearing science

B. Taylor, D.G. Jamieson, M.F. Cheesman


An Internet-based course on Instrumentation Systems is being offered for undergraduate students of Audiology at the University of Western Ontario in Canada. The Internet-based course is designed to introduce students to basic topics in acoustics, sound generation and transmission, sound characterization for both clinical and scientific purposes, anatomy of the human auditory system, auditory physiology, and auditory sensation and perception. The course has been developed as a series of modules reflecting the topics covered in the current course, during approximately 39 hours of lectures and 26 hours of laboratories.
