The Hearing First Learning Philosophy

Hearing First supports a learning model of Seek-Sense-Share. (Jarche, 2012) This model supports a complete cycle of learning to promote change in LSL living and practice. Learners seek new knowledge, make sense of it by applying, practicing, reflecting and collaborating then share back ideas and experiences with others. We believe this connected online learner-driven approach will equip families and professionals with the essential knowledge and skills to improve LSL outcomes for young children and their families.
