International collaboration: Blended Learning as a means to design and implement higher education courses in applied behaviour analysis and autism
2011 (English)In: / [ed] Carl Hughes, 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
The last decade has experienced an increase of children diagnosed with autism creating a demand for behaviour analytic supports. However many countries lack expertise and university based coursework in behaviour analysis as it applies to autism. The purpose of this paper is to present two master level higher education courses which utilized blended learning technologies. The first course adhered to BACB certification guidelines, and was designed and implemented through collaboration between The University of North Texas and Stockholm University. The second course was subsidized by Nordplus Higher Education and introduced applied behaviour analysis and autism to a group of students enrolled in four Nordic-Baltic universities/colleges. Courses were evaluated using different formats. Findings are discussed related to topics raised at higher education summit held at the University of North Texas which focused on issues pertaining to designing, implementing, and supervising behaviour analytic interventions in autism.
