Another way ASLTA members can get involved is by helping improve the website. Specifically, ASLTA is looking for the following:
1. PICTURES SHOWING ASL BEING TAUGHT AND LEARNED
- Pictures of ASL educators teaching. Examples: Teacher standing in front of a class; tutoring; having a discussion between a teacher and student, etc. ASLTA is looking for pictures showing ASL teaching as it looks like in real life.
- Pictures of ASL students learning and using ASL. Examples: Small group discussions; a student giving a presentation; students watching a signer.
While not every picture submitted can be accepted, the intent is to place such photos on various pages of the ASLTA website. Photo details:
- Reflecting social diversity is important, for both teachers and students.
- Any type of photo can be submitted (.tif, .jpg, etc.).
- All people appearing in a photo must sign a disclosure agreement allowing their photos to be used. Contact the ASLTA Secretary for the form.
- Photos of individuals less than 18 years of age cannot be submitted, unless student faces are blurred to prevent identification.
- Send photos along with the signed disclosure agreement and a list clearly identifying who appears in each photo to the ASLTA Secretary.
2. VIDEOS FEATURING ASL TEACHERS
- Short videos of ASL teachers talking about teaching ASL. Examples: A common problem with a unique solution you want to share; why and how you became an ASL teacher; giving advice to future ASL teachers.
- Short videos explaining what ASLTA means to you as an ASL professional.
- Each individual appearing in a video must sign a disclosure agreement allowing their video/s to be used. Contact the ASLTA Secretary for the form.
- Videos of individuals less than 18 years of age cannot be submitted.
- Contact the ASLTA Secretary when you have a video to submit, and you will be given uploading instructions.
Thank you for getting involved with ASLTA!
