IP&SENSIG February 2021 eBulletin
On 22 January 2021 we organized our first drop-in session. It was devoted to teaching students with a hearing loss. During the session we discussed, among others, types of deafness and the impact of hearing loss on students’ functioning in language classrooms, such classrooms arrangements as seating and acoustics as well as teacher’s behaviour. If you want to learn more about addressing students, giving instructions and testing accommodations join us on Friday, 12 February, 2021, 16.00 GMT (17.00 CET).
