Helen Chilton




Lecturer in Deaf Education.

My research interests currently include : Theory of Mind in the context of practical intervention; the need for appropriately high expectations of deaf children and the use of new technology in teaching Teachers of the Deaf.

I am module lead for the following elements of the PgDip Deaf Education:

Psyc 60240: Language Acquisition

Psyc 60270: Policy and Practice

I also teach within the followings modules of the PgDip Deaf Education :

Psyc 61230: Audiological Management

Psyc 60260: Developing Deaf Child

Psyc 63020 / 60310 Teaching and Learning

I also oversee the arrangements for Teaching and Learning (Teaching Practice) placements for students on the course. This involves engaging with schools and services, internal and external supervisors.

I am interested in the use of teaching methods which encourage learners to apply theoretical knowledge to real life experiences in deaf education. For example, within the practical teaching I am responsible for in Audiological Management I use innovative methods such as a simulated school (year 2) to support learners in problem solving skills.

I am committed to good quality provision for e-learning students and teach both the on-campus PgDip cohort and the e-blended cohort. I have experience of using new technologies (e.g. Fuze) in order to ensure parity of delivery and provision at a distance.
