Deaf literacy summary report – thanks to our participants and collaborators

27 October, 2016

We are delighted to share a summary report of our recently completed Peer-to-Peer Deaf Literacy project, and we wish to thank our learners, research assistants, peer tutors and co-researchers for their immense contributions toward the success of this research, including partners in India, Uganda and Ghana. Our findings show that the project’s approach to teaching English was effective because learners significantly improved their English skills. It was also evaluated positively by the learners with respect to the use of real-life texts, Indian Sign Language, diverse activities, multimodal resources, and supportive guidance by peer tutors. Thanks to the expertise of our Indian Advisory Committee, we have come up with some concrete plans for further work in India. Moreover, this innovative approach devised with colleagues at Lancaster University is currently being expanded to engage further groups of deaf learners in other countries.

The report is available here: summary-report-p2pdl.
