We’re delighted to announce the soft launch of the Audiology Refreshers digital resource on the 21st June, 1.30-3.00pm.
This BATOD project is funded by the William Demant Foundation, working in partnership with DeafKidz International (DKI) who are co-ordinating the project, along with the British Society of Audiology, the lead partner.
Six working groups made up of dedicated chairs, co-chairs and experts working in deaf education, audiology and technology across the UK have been developing new and updated content on
1. Anatomy and physiology
2. Aetiology and types of deafness
3. Auditory perception and hearing testing
4. Acoustics and physics of sound
5. Listening skills and functional hearing
6. Hearing technologies and assistive listening devices
The Audiology Refresher resource was originally conceived by Margaret Glasgow and were originally published as a series over several years in issues of the BATOD Magazine. The mandatory qualification training for Teachers of Deaf Children and Young People includes basic audiology. The audiological knowledge required to support deaf children and young people is wide ranging. Margaret, and colleagues, authored a series of articles to give Qualified Teachers of Deaf Children and Young People (QToDs), students, and other professionals working with deaf children quick access to refresh their memory of basic audiological knowledge and practices. The resource was last updated in 2009 and this project has offered the opportunity to seek the views of students, QToDs and associated professionals to help shape and lead this vital update.
Join us to hear from the working group leads on progress made to date on the Audiology Refreshers resource, how you can make good use of the resource developed, how you can take part in the development of content in the future and how we will intend to review the project through a follow up survey later this year.
