The purpose of this course is to provide a foundation of knowledge related to cochlear implant technology and the impact and effect the technology has on the delivery of quality interpreting services. This course has been designed to engage you in the exploration of the human ear, hearing loss, and cochlear implant technology. Additionally, you will begin to identify the implications of technology on a student’s education, and how other educational team members can be important and supportive allies. Finally, you will begin to acknowledge new approaches to interpreting for students who have cochlear implants and identify new strategies and resources that will enhance the work that you do in the classroom as well as your collaboration with the educational team.
If any prerequisites are required, they will be listed above. Prerequisites require an instructor override in advance of your registration in Ursa.

At this time, UNC has secured approval to serve online education to students from every state and the U.S. Virgin Islands via our participation in NC-SARA and some additional state-by-state authorizations. However, we are not currently accepting students to our online programs who reside in Puerto Rico or the CNMIs. Due to how fluid these agreements can be at the state or federal level, we recommend checking our Eligibility by State page for details.
