ADVANCED DIAGNOSTIC AUDIOLOGY 1: OBJECTIVE ASSESSMENT TECHNIQUES IN AUDIOLOGY
Credit points: 15
In this course you will learn about concepts and procedures used in objective measurements of hearing and site-of-lesion testing in audiology. Through lectures and workshops, you will learn about the origin of otoacoustic emissions and acoustically evoked potentials of the auditory pathway, including electrocochleography, auditory brainstem responses, middle and late latency potentials, and auditory steady state responses.Building on this theoretical knowledge, you will develop skills in assessing otoacoustic emissions and auditory evoked potentials, and integrating the results of these objective techniques with behavioural tests used in audiological evaluations. Your learning in this subject will be assessed through written examinations and two written assessments.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes
01. Integrates and consolidates theoretical information on the anatomical and physiological principles underpinning objective assessment techniques in audiology.
- - Lectures - Additional information (readings, websites) provided on LMS - Components of a written examination
02. Critically designs, evaluates and reviews the protocols and procedures for oto-acoustic emission and auditory evoked response measurement and is able to apply this knowledge in applying sound clinical decision-making and trouble-shooting.
- - Lectures - Additional information (readings, websites) provided on LMS - Components of a written examination - Assignment: Objective Measures. students will be required to conduct 2 OAEs, 2 ABR and 1 cortical evoked potential case study assessments .
03. Integrates and consolidates information from objective tests with behavioural tests in the overall audiological test battery, interprets the results of these tests to differentially diagnose various hearing disorders and is able to apply this knowledge in applying sound clinical decision-making and trouble-shooting
- - Lecture and workshop classes- Components of a written examination - PBL workshop: students will be provided with case files containing results of both subjective and objective test results. Students will integrate the findings from across the test battery, discuss possible pathologies and identify any further information required for differential diagnosis. 04
04. Synthesizes knowledge of pathologies involving the central auditory system, and the role of objective techniques in the differential diagnosis of central auditory disorders.
