La Trobe University staff offer a wealth of expertise in sign language linguistics and applied areas such as the teaching of Auslan as a second language to adults. We provide technical expertise in Auslan teaching and resource development, curriculum support materials and professional development of Auslan teachers.
La Trobe University Auslan electives for first and second-year undergraduate students are currently being redeveloped as a blend of face-to-face lectures and workshops, in conjunction with online learning. We see our students as future professionals in fields as diverse as speech therapy, education, science and the law. Our aim is to facilitate their communication within the deaf community and with their future deaf clients.
