A. In "Best Practices for Teaching" (web page, links and videos), DeafTEC outlines the "best teaching strategies based on Universal Design ... for instructors teaching ... a mix of hearing, deaf and hard-of-hearing students."

"The goal of these strategies is to improve teaching practice that will provide greater access to learning for deaf and hard-of-hearing students but will benefit all students in the classroom as well" (Many of these practices also benefit deaf and hard-of-hearing participants in meetings, conferences, conversations, poster sessions, etc.)
