Live Student Panel Provided Strategies, Connections
The National Deaf Center (NDC) is here to help. First and foremost, we recognize that deaf students need to meet and share strategies with each other in a supportive and accessible environment. With everyone at home, deaf students also are experiencing a loss of contact with their peer networks, including other deaf students and allies.
On April 9, NDC hosted its first online student panel on Zoom. It was attended by deaf students, in an open conversation about their experiences with the transition online during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The response was terrific. Almost 50 attendees raised many issues and concerns about challenges they have faced. Panelists and students alike provided examples of strategies on how to advocate for their rights, resources to support them while learning online, and a national network of peers to draw upon for support.
Join Us for Another Panel on April 22
Due to popular demand, NDC will host a second online student panel on Zoom on April 22 at 7 to 8:30 p.m. CDT. Please share this save the date with deaf college students! This event will be conducted in ASL with English interpretation and captioning.
