Supporting Accessible Learning Environments and Instruction for Deaf Students

A group of people sitting in a lecture hall, with some of them using laptops and computers. They are watching someone giving a lecture.

Supporting Accessible Learning Environments and Instruction for Deaf Students provides strategies, tips, and resources that colleges can use to increase accessibility within the classroom. This module addresses challenges with traditional pedagogy that create barriers to student engagement and incidental learning for deaf students. This module will explore classroom spaces and how to support the use of accommodations, creating a community of learners through accessible environments and student engagement, and teaching strategies that will strengthen the learning experience for deaf students overall.

By the end of this module, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the key elements of an accessible and inclusive learning environment
  • Identify instructional strategies for fostering inclusion, meaningful learning, and active engagement for deaf students.
  • Identify strategies to increase students’ ability to engage and interact equitably with peers and faculty
