Presenter

Patrick Rosenburg is a qualified deaf teacher of deaf children and young people working at University College London as a post doctoral researcher. He is interested in understanding more about the interdependent relationship between signed language and spoken language through different modalities. Patrick is currently funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) to continue his studies on language comprehension skills in deaf children. He will be working on translating an American Sign Language (ASL) assessment task that measures deaf children's comprehension skills in ASL into British Sign Language (BSL).

Future sessions

Themes will be guided by the leaders for those sessions. We will draw leaders from recent PhD graduates and PhD students studying in these areas as well as advanced practitioners.
