Preservice Training: Star Online Project
In addition to training inservice teachers, CAEBER has developed a college curriculum for preservice teachers, called STAR Online. STAR Online is a three-semester college curriculum that incorporates both online and in-class features, to be used by teacher-educators at university deaf education teacher preparation programs to prepare preservice teachers in ASL/English bilingual instructional theories and techniques.
Seven universities currently use the curriculum from online courses and they are: Gallaudet University, Lamar University, McDaniel College, Western Oregon University, University of Tulsa, California State University Northridge, and University of Hawaii. Two universities, Gallaudet University and Lamar University, utilize the full online components while the other universities use parts of the online components and online curriculum as meets their needs.
