​Inclusion Online is an online learning portal that offers a suite of online learning courses that enables teachers to undertake professional learning focussing on the understanding, assessment and classroom support of students with disabilities and learning difficulties.  

The Understanding Hearing Loss course is held over one school term (ten weeks).  To complete the course, participants must take part in three face to face sessions and commit to two hours of self-paced work per week. 

The course provides an introduction to the knowledge and skills teachers require to support the teaching and learning needs of students with hearing loss. The course has four main elements: understanding, assessment for learning, interventions and case studies. 

The content is presented in a variety of different formats to engage interest and accommodate different learning preferences.  All courses include interactions, animations and video examples, as well as written materials and links to online resources. 

These courses are advertised each term through a bulletin to schools. 

Locations are nominated each term.  Some courses will be presented via video conference.
