"Promoting excellence in sign language instruction"

Tobias Haug obtained a master’s degree in Language Testing (distance). His dissertation is titled Development and Evaluation of Two Vocabulary Tests for Swiss German Sign Language (2017). By the way, he passed "with distinction"! Congratulations from all of us! We are very proud to have him in the Expert Team of PRO-Sign2.

Christian Rathmann delivered two talks in Budapest, Hungary, on 9 November at the 3rd International Conference of the World Federation of the Deaf with the theme Full Inclusion with Sign Languages, and he talked about ‘Language Choices in Deaf Infants: Advice for (Hearing) Parents’ (a joint talk with colleagues). He also presented in London, UK, on 10 November 2017, at the ESCR event at City University, Go See: Learning British Sign Language: Bridging Research and Practice. The title of his presentation was ‘Current Issues in Second Sign Language Research’. ProSign and CEFR for Sign Languages have been mentioned and discussed.

The Expert team members are involved in the Implementation of European Language Portfolio (ELP) for Sign Languages as a pilot project at Trinity College (Leeson) and Humboldt-Universität (Rathmann), which have already started. Zürich (Haug) and Utrecht (van den Bogaerde) will follow soon. Preliminary pilot results will be presented in our Network meeting in April 2018.
