Complementary study programme in Austrian Sign Language (ASL)

Target groups: primarily students for special needs education and integrative pedagogy, and also students from other disciplines can qualify for participation. Objectives: The aim of the extensive curriculum "Principles of the Austrian Sign Language (ASL) I" is to convey to students an additional qualification in the field of the Austrian Sign Language (ASL). They should acquire knowledge about the deaf community, linguistic knowledge of the sign language as well as basic active and passive skills in ASL. The aim of continuing EC ASL II is the ability to communicate in ASL at the level A2-B1, as well as in-depth knowledge of the educational, cultural and social particularity of the deaf community. Deliverables: developing students’ and teacher’s skills (in using foreign languages, preparing and giving presentations, using multimedia technologies, management and social skills), developing a sense of belonging to the European community.
