This workshop will add on to part I on diverse cultural perspectives in the classrooms by utilizing videos and discussions around experiences of diverse Deaf and hearing people from interviews done by the presenter. Educators will learn how to analyze their thoughts surrounding cross-cultural information, people, and perspectives. They will learn now to discuss culturally relevant issues for Deaf and hearing People of Color communities and how they can add diverse perspectives into their teaching which may impact the interpreting process and consumer satisfaction.
