MSU Offers Online Training for Michigan Teachers

Posted: Updated:

An Deaf and Hard of Hearing class at Minot State has added a few new students, but they're not on campus.

It's online class and it provides graduate-level training to teachers of students who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Due to budget cuts, the deaf and hard of hearing programs in Michigan were eliminated.

So, MSU, along with nine other universities around the country, partnered with the Michigan Department of Education to help prepare its teachers.

Three students from Michigan are currently enrolled in the Introduction to Deaf and Hard of Hearing Education online class.

Director of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program, Holly Pedersen says having people from other states in the class allows the students to learn from one another.

(Holly Pedersen, Director, Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program) "We get to hear perspectives from all over the place. So my students in the class can bring their perspective from where they are teaching and then we also get to hear the perspective of those teachers in Michigan. What services are like there, what experiences have you shared. It just enriches the class to get to hear from many different perspectives."
