Course content

The course is for teachers who teach in and about Norwegian Sign Language in primary school. The course builds on the course Norwegian Sign Language 1, and aims to further develop students' knowledge about and skills in using Norwegian Sign Language.
The language training aims to develop basic signing skills in the teacher. The didactic parts of the course are based in the curricula and competency aims used in schools. Different perspectives in teaching deaf and hard of hearing pupils will be treated theoretically and as a part of how the course is taught.
