Abstract

Instruction of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) content has always been challenging for deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) students. Several major factors related to STEM subjects, K-12 education of DHH students, and the unique instructional environment have adversely affected student learning delivered through traditional one-pace-fits-all university classroom lectures. These factors include DHH students’ general lack of prior scientific content knowledge, practice-based skill acquisition in STEM fields that requires learning labs to replicate real-world environment, communication difficulties caused by a lack of a universal signing standard and extensive use of fingerspelling in signed lectures, and a significant diversity in learner capability. This paper reviews relevant literature, describes a multiple case study (still in progress), designed to explore a blended learning pedagogy with DHH biology majors to enhance their comprehension and scientific reasoning skills, and reports its preliminary findings.
