Teachers of the deaf (TODs) will progress their understanding of transition issues for secondary students who are deaf or hard of hearing. It is intended that the 4-part series will equip TODs with expertise sufficient to allow them to support TOD colleagues who have not attended the training.
 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

  1. Develop their knowledge and skills to more effectively support students who are deaf or hard of hearing in an individualised and optimal transition from secondary school to the next stage of their lives;

  2. Acquire knowledge and abilities to develop students' self-determination skills

  3. Become familiar with some transition-related assessment tools and instructional materials that they can use with their students, and that they can advise their students' mainstream teachers and career counsellors on

  4. Increase their abilities to effectively collaborate with mainstream teachers and careers' counsellors in order to optimise individual student transitions

  5. Develop these skills through practical application using case-based problem-solving
