Submit a Proposal to Present a Practical Webcast!

Are you experienced in making a real difference in the outcomes of children with hearing loss?

The field of educating children with hearing loss is broad and complex as we try to improve their future outcomes in academics, communication, access, and social/emotional development. There is always something new to learn and practical techniques to try!

Have you ever had a colleague say to you something like:

  • Your students really seem to pick up _______ skills quickly and they really know it! What do you do?
  • I love how you explain ________ to students/teachers/parents and your use of ___________ materials.
  • The mainstream teachers you work with really seem to ‘get it’ and your students are doing so well this year! I need to observe you to pick up your tricks!
  • This student was so far behind, but now that he’s receiving services from you, he’s really making progress! What techniques are you using?
  • After a team evaluation with you, the building team really seems to ‘get it’. What evaluation tools or techniques are you using?

Submit your idea

(a) Describe your idea of a webcast in 50-300 words (including which broad topic it fits into, see below). Give it an interesting and compelling (‘I want to hear that!’) title.

(b) Specify 3 clear objectives (The participant will be able to… ). A webcast is not an appropriate format to ‘sell’ a product, but can be tied to the practical use of checklists, materials, techniques.
