CENTER FOR CONTINUING AND ONLINE EDUCATION
AUDISM WEBINAR SERIES
Link: https://www.gallaudet.edu/ccoe/audism (Full schedule)
Gallaudet University’s Center for Continuing and Online Education, in partnership with the Deaf Studies Digital Journal and with support from the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School, Research and Continuing and Online Education are proud to present an upcoming series of webinars on Audism in our communities. A group of world-class scholars have joined this series to discuss the impacts audism has upon Deaf people. It is important to note that the concept of audism has long been part of the Deaf community landscape, even before Dr. Tom L. Humpries coined the term in 1975. The collective discourses on the oppression experienced by Deaf people date back to the early nineteenth century, yet has not been analyzed in-depth even in today’s age. To reaffirm society’s commitment toward social equity, our educational webinars will allow a sustainable conversation on audism as a critical step toward a plural and inclusive society.
This is a series of seven live-webinars ranging from theoretical to practical that will be offered throughout the Spring 2021, and they will be delivered in American Sign Language. The format of these Zoom webinars will be 90 minutes long. They are divided into four parts: (1) Introductions: 5 minutes, (2) Main lecture: 50 minutes, (3) Q & A: 30 minutes (this will be moderated and translated into ASL from Q & A Panel in Zoom), and (4) Wrap up: 5 minutes.
Cost is $20.00 per webinar. If taking the webinar for RID CEUs, the cost is $30.00 per webinar. Each webinar is .15 RID CEUs. A certificate of participation will be issued after completion of a short quiz on the webinar topic.
