This project aims at providing students with visual learning resources that enhance their understanding of the linguistic properties of sign languages. Unlike spoken languages, sign languages are visual-gestural in nature, with space and facial expressions playing an essential role in the grammatical system. Students with minimal prior knowledge of sign language often face difficulties in learning how to compare sign and spoken language mechanisms, and how to analyze sign language data from a linguistic perspective.
Visual learning resources demonstrating sign linguistic concepts and the skills essential for analyzing sign language data are produced. Areas covered include (a) understanding hearing loss; (b) different modes of communication for Deaf people; (c) sign language grammatical system; and (d) how to prepare and analyze sign language data. These 4 micro-modules are designed to facilitate Flipped Classroom Teaching. The videos from these micro-modules helped consolidate students’ knowledge of these four areas, and enhanced their in-class learning.

Each micro-module consists of a short video and uploaded on Blackboard followed by a short online quiz to measure the students’ understanding of the video content.
The micro-modules can be used by other Linguistic courses as supplementary information as well. They offer useful information and knowledge related to sign languages studies, and are useful for other Linguistic students to learn about the linguistic system of sign languages. These micro-modules are also useful for sign interpretation students who want to learn more about the differences between sign language and spoken language.
