Deaf/Hard of Hearing Student in My Class – What do I do? Hours: 1.5

Join us for an opportunity to get your questions answered about having a deaf/hard of hearing (hh) student in your class. Will there be interpreters? Will there be a CART provider? What does that entail? How do I get my lectures captioned? Bring your questions and we will have a robust discussion of the whats, hows, and whys. Bring your ideas, too. We’ll talk about platforms and the pros/cons of each one available to us. One size does not fit all.

Ginger Bennett has worked with ACC Interpreter Services for over 15 years. The variety of settings has given her many opportunities to receive feedback from students, instructors, and interpreters about what went well. Prior to ACC, Ginger worked in the public education sector and as an independent contractor. Every day is a new challenge and a new moment to do better.

Remote Recess Sessions

Remote Recess sessions offer an opportunity for faculty to gather online and learn something new in a low-stakes, casual, and FUN way. Each session will focus on a topic (like Blackboard Collaborate), will start with a short demo, then the facilitator will open the session to Q&A. Participants are encouraged to share tips and tricks as we all learn how to teach remotely together. These sessions are designed to help you decide how and when to use certain technologies and activities online.

No registration required, just meet us on the “playground”!
