Director of Clinical Education in Audiology
PhD, Indiana University
Clinical Education and Adult Aural Rehabilitation
Dr. Cokely joined the Doctor of Audiology (AuD) Program within the School of Behavior and Brain Sciences in 2001 as the Coordinator of Clinical Teaching. She develops programs to enhance and evaluate the quality of clinical education at the University of Texas at Dallas Callier Center. She earned a BA degree from Queens College of the City University of New York, a MA degree from Northwestern University and PhD from Indiana University. Prior to a move to north Texas, academic affiliations included Clinical Assistant Professor at Indiana University and Adjunct faculty at Baylor University. She has extensive clinical and supervisory experience in medical, educational and university environments. Dr. Cokely serves on the Board of Directors of the American Academy of Audiology (AAA) and the Academy of Rehabilitative Audiology, as past president. Dr. Cokely is a member of the Audiology group of the Audiology Quality Consortium of the American Speech Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) and has been a member of various subcommittees of the Education Committee of the American Academy of Audiology (AAA).
Dr. Cokely teaches courses in adult aural rehabilitation, research methods, and counseling. She developed Teaching Clinics in Audiology as a result of her interest in clinical-teaching methods. Teaching Clinics during the first two semesters occur along side standard rotations and are designed to provide first-year AuD students direct access to evaluation and counseling methods in a forum that fosters critical thinking and independence. All on-campus and off-site clinic rotations, including full-time, year-long externships during students' fourth year in the Program are coordinated by Dr. Cokely. She directs independent-research projects. Her continued areas of research are auditory rehabilitation and clinical-teaching methods. She has published and given presentations nationally and internationally on innovative teaching methods in rehabilitation, implementing service learning in doctoral curriculum, and incorporating reflective skills into clinical practice. She continues to serve as research mentor to AuD students for their independent research requirement.
