Supporting the success of online students who are Deaf - #OLCAccelerate

Marquart, Matthea S.; Counselman Carpenter, Elisabeth A.

One social justice victory of online education is the ability to expand access to higher education and serve a diverse student body. This interactive session will give instructors and administrators the chance to share strategies and tools for supporting the success of students who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing. Online courses with synchronous components generally include audio elements in the form of live virtual classes; homework assignments that include videos, podcasts, or other media; and student-generated media assignments such as introductory videos or video role plays. To enable students who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing to fully participate in these courses, school administrators and instructors need to be ready with tools and strategies, such as live captioners or American Sign Language translators, media captioners, and plans for inclusive lessons.

This interactive session will provide a forum for those with experience supporting the success of students who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing to share their experiences, and for those without experience to learn and ask questions.

The goals for this session include:
- Sharing concrete tools and resources that can support online students who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing
- Sharing strategies for inclusive lesson planning and instructional design
- Identifying areas where institutions can better prepare to support students who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing
