Abstract

This presentation will share research which explores how video notes can be leveraged to support Deaf students learning experiences in higher education. Students’ study practices are essential to their academic success (Mega, Ronconi, & DeBeni, 2014). Deaf students often face challenges in note taking while viewing the interpreted lesson in courses. Deaf students are also at the mercy of working from written lectures notes taken by their peers. This pilot study proposes a new approach to note taking for deaf students using video capture of interpreted lessons in face-to-face classrooms. Video note taking would provide an opportunity to go beyond handwritten notes for Deaf students by providing a video capture of the interpreted lecture for students’ reference after the conclusion of the lesson and/or lecture. This project serves to redefine access for Deaf postsecondary students and bridge a gap that is often not explored.
