Community Engagement Grant
The Deaf Experience, Deaf Expression (DXDX) Project has received a College of Arts and Sciences Community Engagement Grant! It will support the expansion of our video collection to include interviews with people with adult-onset hearing loss, milder levels of hearing loss, family members and related support professionals. I will again offer my honors course for sign language and CSD students to work on the project all year long. This has been a great way for busy clinical and social science students to get hands-on experience with all stages of a big project, and the project would be almost nowhere without them.
Two juniors on my Deaf Experience, Deaf Expression (DXDX) Project, Bailey Smith and Mary Vang, prepared and presented a poster at OSU's first annual Undergraduate Research Symposium. Their flow chart illustrates the tasks that students in my lab and honors courses have completed while "Building the Deaf Experience, Deaf Expression (DXDX) Project."
