Technology for Transdisciplinary Research

Dr. Delaina Walker-Batson is passionate about the training and research conducted at TWU’s Stroke Center - Dallas at the T. Boone Pickens Institute of Health Sciences. Speech Language Pathology, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Nursing students are involved at various levels of learning at the center.



Students who work with patients at the center benefit from a CCTV system that provides both live and recorded video feeds of a variety of patients receiving treatment provided by students in training and experienced professionals.  A patient being treated by one student is supporting the learning of that student, as well as any other student who reviews that interaction.

The Stroke Center’s reputation is such that students from across the state travel to complete observations at the Center.

The Dallas Technology team is there to support the needs of this excellent research and teaching center. The Office of Technology is eager to connect TWU students to their QEP: Learn by Doing. Making technology available to TWU faculty and students enables transformational learning that benefits our local communities and the state of Texas.
