Teacher Perspectives

This page presents videotape recordings of faculty discussing their experiences in providing instruction to Deaf/HH students. We encourage you to view these videotape segments, as they provide direct comments from faculty with extensive experience dealing with access issues. These recordings may be of particular interest to classroom teachers who seek the perspective of other teachers who have ‘been there.’

Finally, we are interested in any and all feedback on your thoughts regarding the site.
