Instructional Strategies for Deaf Student Success



Full course description

In three one-hour modules, Instructional Strategies for Deaf Student Success uses evidence-based research, real-world examples, and useful resources ready for immediate implementation. 

  • Module 1 explores classroom spaces and how to integrate and support accommodations, such as ASL interpreters, speech-to-text services, assistive listening devices, and note-taking.
  • Module 2 addresses how to create a community of learners by using accessible teaching strategies and ensuring student engagement.
  • Module 3 focuses on teaching tips and implementing the strategies to strengthen learning experiences. 


What It Addresses 


More than 200,000 deaf and hard of hearing students attend colleges and universities in the United States. Yet “begrudging tolerance” was what many encountered in the classroom and on campus, according to NDC’s nationwide report about college accessibility. It’s an issue that is exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic


Simply providing a basic level of accommodations does not guarantee that deaf students have full access to the broader learning environment. As a result of this and other factors, research shows deaf people are less likely to complete an associate’s, bachelor’s, or graduate degree. 


Who It is Designed For 


Instructional Strategies for Deaf Student Success is designed for postsecondary and secondary educators, transition counselors, interpreters, and anyone interested in learning about accessible learning environments.
