Developing a Multi-Purpose E-Learning Application for Speech and Language Therapy Students and Professionals Using a Design Science Research Approach

This paper presents Teen Talk as a multi-purpose e-learning application that was designed and developed using Design Science Research (DSR) approach. Teen Talk offers training for professionals and students who work with adolescents and young adults with significant speech, language and communication needs (SLCN). It is a multi-purpose tool, offering traditional education content to students/trainees (for example, student Speech and Language Therapists) and a professional development opportunity for professionals working in the field (for example, professionals working with adolescents with SLCN in Youth Offending teams). The resource uses video material of adolescents with SLCN to structure interactive learning tasks. Finally, the structure as well as the different aspects and components of Teen Talk are presented and discussed.
