Watching media without captions can be frustrating for deaf students. Captioned media not only supports deaf students, but is beneficial for the entire campus community. Accessible campuses require that videos be captioned, however, survey results from 87 disability service professionals found that only 30% of their institutions offered this service  (Supporting Deaf College Students: Perspectives From Disability Services Professionals, 2022). Join NDC for a panel of disability service professionals to discuss their experiences with policy and procedures for captioned media on campus. While this webinar is designed for DSS personnel, administrators, policymakers, and participants from all professional backgrounds are encouraged to attend. The agenda for this webinar is derived from common inquiries to NDC’s Help Desk which include: 
  • Guidance on who is responsible for captioning media,
  • How to implement captioned media policies and procedures, and
  • Ways to leverage campus collaborations.
Join us on January 19th, 2023 from 2:00 – 3:00 pm CT to learn about how to coordinate captioned media at your institution.

Panelists

  • Sheryl Ballenger, Ph.D., CPACC — Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services, Manager with the Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation (CIDI) at Georgia Institute of Technology
  • Brittany Mammenga, ADAC — Captioning Coordinator at Minneapolis Community College
  • Andrew Weaver, NIC — Sign Language Interpreting and Transcription Coordinator at the University of Oregon

Captioned Media Work Group

NDC will be hosting Captioned Media Work Group meetings via Zoom, for a maximum of 10 people, and will meet on the second Wednesday of each month from 1-2 PM CST. To qualify for registration, participants must be disability services professionals who already have experience with captioned media services and have an existing policy and/or process in place. People who are new to captioned media, or do not have a campus policy in place, should view our other available materials (i.e. webinars, online learning courses, and topic pages). This group will not be an instructional space, but rather is intended as an opportunity for people to work together to evaluate their own policies and develop options for improvement. The first group meeting is tentatively planned for March, centering around introductions, sharing of policies and processes, and a discussion of challenges, successes, and areas of improvement. Future workgroup meetings will spotlight successful policies and processes from other institutions as well as the opportunity for a shared workspace to work collaboratively towards further policy development. To register, please fill out this form.

...Did you know that more deaf women are going to college than deaf men? It's true! About 6.4% of deaf women are in college compared to 4.2% of deaf men (Bloom, Palmer, Winninghoff, 2024). But overall, not many deaf people are going to college compared to those who can hear.
