Although our budget is modest, deafConnectEd is keen to support interpreters, Auslan teachers and students by developing language resources and offering innovative learning opportunities.
deafConnectEd was therefore very proud to sponsor the first in a new series of presentations by the iAuslan team called: iAuslan+
Luke King was the first presenter in the iAuslan+ series, giving a talk about a recent trip to Japan and the complex techniques involved in wood cutting and printing.
We look forward to working with the iAuslan team to develop more videos on a variety of subjects and genres as a way of better supporting Auslan students as well as qualified interpreters wanting to improve their Auslan skills.
We are also very pleased to announce the first two Linguistics of Auslan videos are now available on our website. These short videos provide information about the grammar and use of Auslan – in Auslan!
Further videos are in the pipeline and will be added to this page throughout the year. This project was initiated through a project by ASLIA Victoria and the Victorian Deaf Education Institute and will be continued by the deafConnectEd team.
