Campus Partnership Enhances Learning Through Improved Hearing & Listening Techniques

OLLI Hearing && Listening Workshop A recent study by OLLI at UC Berkeley showed that the #1 reason OLLI members leave OLLI is because of hearing loss and the frustration and/or embarrassment it causes. In an effort to counter this trend, OLLI is partnering with Dr. Suzanne Miller, director of the Center for Communications Sciences & Disorders (CMSD), to develop teaching/learning opportunities for OLLI peer leaders and CSU, Chico students. Personal consultations, research projects, and classroom visits to assess OLLI’s sound systems in our primary classrooms are all underway this spring. These activities follow two workshops last fall, where Dr. Miller and her students addressed hearing loss and identified ways we can improve the overall classroom experience by becoming aware of the issues and techniques used to address hearing loss. These activities also give CSU, Chico students the opportunity to work with older adults in a classroom setting, which is as much a learning opportunity to help them succeed as it is for OLLI. Stay tuned for more information!
