Unit of study_

Audiology 1 - CSCD2071

Year - 2020

The unit will introduce the different types of hearing loss, basic audiological tests, and clinical procedures for evaluating hearing in children and adults. Students will learn to interpret audiological results and make conclusions about the severity, type, and configuration of the hearing impairment. This will promote an understanding of how the anatomy and physiology of the ear and cortex function, and how to assess the structures of the auditory system to diagnose different hearing related conditions.

2 hrs per week lectures, 1 hr per week tutorial

case based assignment (30%), practical hearing assessment and report (40%) final exam (30%)
