NDC Offers a New Enhanced Online Learning Experience

Published on November 10, 2022

The National Deaf Center (NDC) has provided free online learning opportunities for a range of professionals working with deaf people across postsecondary settings. NDC recognizes the importance of having qualified and experienced professionals working with deaf people in pursuit of education and training goals.

To meet the steadily increasing needs of professionals in the field, NDC has continued to provide a range of online learning. Since the start, we have had over 17,000 people take advantage! ! These online learning opportunities have been one of our most successful poursuits toward increasing the knowledge-based skills necessary to implement evidence-based practices and strategies and support #DeafSuccess.

Your Feedback Matters!

Our online learning includes real stories shared by deaf people across the country, discussions with others about concerns and challenges, and opportunities to learn from national experts.  Many of you have taken advantage of these resources and provided valuable feedback. Overall, you  have asked for a wider variety of content, shorter and more targeted learning topics, and an increase in engagement opportunities. We listened and have worked hard at creating a new learning experience for you! 

In August, we started to phase out several existing courses that were two to three hours in length. This content has been revamped and we have realigned our learning opportunities with the feedback we’ve received. We are now providing  new 1-hour learning experiences in a modular form. Each module includes updated resources, new interactive opportunities, and more scenario-based examples. Additionally, our new approach includes interactive features to increase engagement, learning, and enhance the overall experience. 

We’ve also recently released newly updated and revised versions of two modules, Deaf 101 and Attitudes and Biases as Barriers for Deaf People, along with several new modules coming soon, including:
