Welcome to the deafConnectEd website.
We have information for people who are Deaf or hard of hearing, who are studying or just thinking about study. We also offer information and support to teachers and trainers, interpreters and notetakers, so please visit the different sections of our website and contact us if you have any questions.
We really value your feedback, so please get in touch if have any suggestions for our website or our services in general.
2017 and 2018 are shaping up to be a busy for deafConnectEd.
We continue to provide our core services, which include:
We also continue to work with our partners in delivering a range of Auslan-related services, including:
We are particularly excited about our partnership with the Victorian Government Department of Premier and Cabinet for funding towards an Auslan and English literacy program for deaf migrants, which will be offered in 2018.
Another significant project is the development of new content for Signbank, the online Auslan dictionary, which is supported by funding from the Department of Education and Training. This new content will include signs, definitions and information for key subject areas in Vocational Education, developed in conjunction with Deaf professionals and interpreters working in these areas. The additional content for Signbank will support students and interpreters, as well as Auslan learners.
