Education Online

The Ear Foundation is aware that increasingly professionals and parents are looking to access information in flexible ways and in their own time. Our Education Online aims to provide access to both resources and online presentations that are free to download and enjoy at your leisure.

In a climate of ever decreasing budgets and ever increasing demands for expertise and evidence based practise we are aiming to provide access to :

  • Free resources that will save “re inventing the wheel” for insets and an be adapåted for your specific needs
  • Information sheets with easy to access , up to date information about hearing technologies
  • Online presentations with power point slides to watch and consider in your own time
  • An archive of recorded talks from internationally renowned  speakers from our Ear Foundation Twilight lectures series.

Interactive Modules

Designed to be completed in a spare 15 minutes, these short interactive modules are at an introductory level perfect for people new to Cochlear Implants.  They are ideal to be used for INSET training in schools or for parents in the comfort of their own homes. 


Additional Resources

The additional resources include Downloads, Online Presentations and Further Learning Modules:

  • Downloads

Documents:  look here for useful information handouts and assessment tools, many available under a creative commons licence as we want you to adapt them to suit the families you support.

Video: hear from families in their own words on many issues relating to having a cochlear implant and ongoing support

Powerpoint: Liked the interactive module, want a powerpoint version you can adapt to use for training others?
