This 2-day (16 hour) workshop is intended to provide Audiology faculty members a template for teaching vestibular assessment and rehabilitation. The content will provide attendees with an overview of the most powerful clinical vestibular assessment tools used today and how to manage and objectively measure student learning outcomes in a classroom and practical setting. Common mistakes made by students and methods for facilitating skill acquisition will be emphasized. Additionally, it will expand upon introductory coursework for vestibular dysfunction as it relates to rehabilitation including benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) and Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT). Evidence-based integration into management principles will be disseminated throughout with practical application during the workshop.

1) Understand common questions associated with central and peripheral vestibulopathies, vertebrobasilar insufficiency, and cervicogenic dizziness.
2) Critique performance via objective measures for oculomotor, vestibuloocular and vestibulospinal reflexes, vertebrobasilar insufficiency, and cervicognic dizziness special tests.
3) Refine and develop techniques for assessment of the vertiginous patient through positional testing for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
4) Evaluate technique demonstration through an objective measure for positional assessment and treatment for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
5) Critique rationale and performance of vestibular rehabilitation techniques.
