Enhancement to your expertise


Content and supplementary material


How will you use what you have learned today?
To empower me to keep believing that deaf pupils can have a quality linguistic experience.
Implement bi-lingual methods into own teaching methods.
Will be useful in daily work especially the glossaries.
I will pass it on to my colleagues for discussion etc.
To improve my understanding in the classroom situation.
To inform best practice in the further education sector. To enhance the BSL content of our website.
Pass this information on to my colleagues at work.
Think the practical use will be in future when glossary is fully developed, but already can use sign vocabulary.
Bilingual glossary project particularly useful. Would use with pupils to look at definitions.
Offer learned information to my work place.
I will update my BSL for Maths! Especially "even", "odd", "decimal places".
