Course Overview

This course focuses on communication technology which will enhance the ability of a person with hearing loss to communicate more effectively. Mentors will be taught to assess the communication needs of their peers and help them select and pursue appropriate options for one on one, group and computer-based communication, as well as to access the media (TV, radio, etc.). Emphasis will be on four areas of technology: Alerting and Warning Devices, Personal Amplification System, Group Listening Systems, and Cochlear Implants. Both Consumer Strategies and Communication Strategies will be addressed in this course.

This course will be online. Learning approaches will include articles and book chapters, case studies, real time discussion, use of discussion forum and power point presentations. Projects which foster experiential learning will be incorporated for many objectives.
