I’ve been taking a CACDP British Sign Language (BSL) Level 1 course this year to develop my communication skills. My final exam is in a few weeks, with a topic focused specifically on work. Early in the course our course tutor John Smith, put the group in the way of newly developed BSL Online Learning Support resources for students studying our CACDP Level 1 course and as our vocabulary has developed, the value of such online video resources have become more and more appreciated.
The CACDP site is great for very basic vocabulary, but due to my academic background I’ve been searching for other online resources to use in tandem with the course to help revise specific vocabulary around higher education and learning sciences. During this search I’ve discovered the excellent Art Signs.
Art Signs is a glossary site from the University of Wolverhampton featuring hundreds of signs for the Arts categorised by discipline, alongside those relating to research, learning and teaching. Signs are listed alphabetically and thematically. Clips are short and speedy – but this is a comprehensive database. Everything from file types and internet terms, through methodology, to teaching and learning vocabulary is on there. Art Signs rewards careful searching and will be of great benefit to those working in Education, Research, Media, Technology and the Arts.
