Module Description: This is a one hour module focusing on captioned media. There are more than 200,000 deaf students attending college nationwide. For them to succeed, their college experience must be accessible. Data from NDC’s technical assistance inquiries indicate that many institutions still experience challenges with design and implementation of effective accommodations including captioning media. One of five key impact areas NDC identified to address root causes to postsecondary attainment is designing accessible environments. Participants will explore captioned media by learning about different types and their benefits. In addition, participants will gain an understanding of some standard practices for using captioned media along with how to implement the use of captioned media while following person centered practices.
Upon completion of this module, participants will be able to:
- Define captioned media
- Identify some standard practices for using captioned media
- Describe some Person Centered practices to incorporate when implementing the use of captioned media
This module is pre-approved for 1 NDC Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Clock Hour.
