Published on April 15, 2020

This image shows a worried teenager sitting with his hands on his head. It seems he is attending an online class and seems very confused and doesn't seem to understand. On the top of the image, there is the text " Deaf College Students: Overwhelmed with online classes + accessibility?

Registration for this event is closed.

We know that some students were unable to attend the first panel discussion on April 9, so we are hosting this panel again in hopes that you can join us. We will host the panel on Zoom on April 22 at 7 to 8:30 p.m. CDT.

Please join us if…

  • You are deaf college student struggling with online learning;

  • Or a deaf student with online tips & tricks to share;

  • Or a deaf student who joined the first panel but have more questions or want to support your peers!

Our panel of deaf undergraduate and graduate students will discuss their online learning experiences and tips for strengthening access and self-care during this stressful time. During the online panel, students are invited to participate and share their own online learning experiences.

The panel will include time for students to ask questions and discuss with an opportunity to follow up with each other.

You will not be on camera unless you want to ask a question to the panel in ASL.

The student panel will be recorded only for internal evaluation purposes.

This event will be conducted in ASL with voiced English interpretation and captioning. For additional access requests email: [email protected].

A note to professionals

The panel is hosted by students and for students only; providing a safe space for students to connect and support one another is the priority. A recording will not be made available to the public for privacy purposes. NDC is planning to host a professional panel in the future and we encourage disability services professionals to participate at that time.

While we understand the desire for professionals to gain insight about what students are experiencing, we encourage you to reach out directly to deaf students you work with to understand individual barriers during this time. If you have specific questions about online accessibility and working with a range of deaf students, we invite you to contact our team of specialists at [email protected] for more targeted support. We are here for you!

...In today’s climate, it is more important than ever that Black History Month should be spent honoring and reflecting on the history and contributions of Black Americans.

This month offers an opportunity to shine a light on the rich tapestry of Black deaf culture, history, and accomplishments that have shaped our world. In a landscape where the narratives of Black deaf people are often sidelined, it's essential to create space for those stories to be shared....
