Open workshop on support for Deaf college students to be held in July in Tokyo

The open workshop for the public will take place on July 3, Saturday, 12:00-15:00 at the Japan College of Social Work (JCSW) in Tokyo, with the theme on the support service for the Deaf or hard of hearing college/universities students.

JCSW has started the Deaf student support project in cooperation with The Nippon Foundation. The JCSW student can apply the support service for any classes or lectures as they wish.

In the workshop, Dr. Mayumi Shirazawa, an associate professor of Tsukuba University of Technology Higher Education Research Support Center, will lecture on the outline of the student support. To deepen basic knowledge of the topic, open discussions will be planned, too.

Any participants who are interested, or currently responsible for the student support service at colleges/universities are welcome.

Capacity: 50 persons (first come first served)

Free admission.
