Creating good listening conditions for learning in education

Photo: Learn how to create good listening conditions in the learning environment

Are you a Teacher of the Deaf or other teacher working with deaf children to improve their educational outcomes? Do you want to improve acoustics in education settings to help deaf children get the maximum benefit from their learning environment?

Good listening conditions make a world of difference to the learning of deaf children and young people. Our practical workshop shows you how to use our recent online resource Creating Good Listening Conditions for Learning in Education and helps you to make the case to improve acoustics to headteachers, special educational needs coordinators (SENCOs) and commissioners. You’ll leave the workshop with a wealth of information and resources – presentations, videos and simulations – to deliver training to schools on good listening environments and reducing background noise.

Key themes

  • The importance of a good listening environment
  • The challenges deaf children face for listening in class
  • What schools can do to improve the listening environment for all pupils
  • Relevant legislation, guidance and regulations
  • Quality marks for schools to demonstrate compliance
