The Faculty of Liberal Arts & Sciences and Innovative Learning is pleased to be working in partnership with the Bob Rumball Centre for the Deaf in the development and delivery of this workshop.
This 10 hour interactive workshop will introduce participants to strategies and techniques for dealing with individuals in the deaf community in first contact emergency situations. Participants will learn the ASL alphabet, basic sign language for emergency situations, and communication strategies to be able to calm, reassure, assess and obtain contact and other necessary information. Participants will also spend time learning about deaf culture in order to have a better understanding on how to communicate with individuals in the deaf community. The workshop is designed to apply what is learned in practice scenarios.
No previous knowledge of Sign Language is required to take this workshop.
At the end of the workshop, participants receive a USB with over 100 practice videos to review the material covered in the workshop and a Humber College Certificate of Participation.

Often times TESL trained teachers go overseas and find themselves in front of a classroom of young children with no experience of how to teach them. This four-hour workshop on Teaching Young Children in the ESL/EFL classroom will provide participants with practical strategies that can be used in an English language classroom full of young learners whether in Canada or overseas. Participants will learn classroom management strategies and reward systems and how to create a supportive learning environment and activities that can be used with young learners. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn how the activities and materials used in adult learning language classes can be adapted for young children.
