About

This Educating Deaf Children - Becoming an Empowered Teacher offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Cape Town provides you with invaluable knowledge and skills about teaching Deaf children.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The programme

With the Educating Deaf Children - Becoming an Empowered Teacher offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Cape Town you will learn about the importance of Deaf culture and community, the need for a language rich environment for the Deaf child from as young as possible, and that having access to sign language can help Deaf children academically, emotionally, and socially. 

We also cover various accommodations and modifications that you can apply in your classroom and learning environment to create an accessible learning experience for Deaf children.

You will also find that a shift in attitude will enable you to connect with Deaf children with more understanding. This course does not teach sign language since each country has its own sign language. We hope that through this course you become an empowered teacher - for yourself, for your fellow teachers, and most importantly, for the Deaf children in your classroom.
