The Journal Club ‘Deaf children and young people’

Wednesday, 19th June 2024

4-5pm on Teams (free registration required)

The Journal Club is aimed at deaf and hearing professionals who are interested in deafness, with education and early years the primary focus. You will be based in the UK or the Republic of Ireland. You may be a Masters or PhD student, or a professional with a postgraduate qualification, working with deaf children or a research student in a related field interested in further study. Your interests might be deaf education, deaf children, speech and language therapy, audiology, and/or Deaf Studies.

This Journal Club will meet once or twice a term. Each session will have two leaders who will facilitate the discussions in the main room and break out groups. Reading articles will either be articles in Deafness & Education International or otherwise open access. Details of the reading are below. All attendees are required to read the article in advance at least twice and write down questions you are interested in following up.

Aims:

  • Provide a safe and respected space for professionals with less experience to enhance their critical evaluation skills.
  • Provide a platform to discuss what the research means to our practice and how it can impact our work.
  • Develop a network of research-active or research-engaged peers to discuss current and future research ideas in deafness, from birth to adulthood.
