Online Learning

DeafTEC is working on several projects that will provide online learning to different audiences. They are all in the works, and coming soon:

For Employers: Working Together Online Course

The Working Together: Deaf & Hearing People online course is designed to help employers develop the sensitivity and skills to communicate effectively with deaf and hard-of-hearing employees, enable deaf and hearing colleagues to work together more productively, and assist in fostering a workplace culture of diversity and inclusion. It is called Working Together because it is about working relationships.

The five self-paced modules in the course will cover topics on:

  1. Myths and Definitions
  2. Hearing Loss
  3. Deaf Culture
  4. Communication
  5. Accommodation and Inclusion in the Workplace

This information can benefit employers, co-workers, HR business leaders, and other inclusion/diversity professionals.
