British Sign Language /English on-line glossary for science - call for images

The University of Wolverhampton has received HEFCE Disabilities funding to develop an on-line British Sign Language/English glossary for science. The glossary is primarily designed to support Deaf students and their interpreters studying introductory undergraduate science subjects, but will also be of general interest to any student who needs additional support with specialist terminology. The project team has been working closely with the LTSNs and academics from institutions all over the UK to identify the most commonly used terms for inclusion. The glossary will cover key introductory terms in and across biology, bio-science, genetics, anatomy, physics, chemistry, geology, physical geography, environmental science and the most commonly used generic HE terms. It will include plain English definitions of around 1600 terms and video clips of the term being signed. We are also intending to use illustrations and photographs to represent the terms, where appropriate, and are currently looking for images that we may be able to use on the web site.

Since our funding is limited and the web site will be freely available to the education community we would like to invite academics to contribute images for possible inclusion. The relevant copyright information and source will, of course, be acknowledged. 

Interested parties will be sent a list of terms and be asked in the first instance to indicate: what terms they think they may have images for; whether the image is a diagram, illustration or photograph; confirmation of who owns the copyright of the image and whether the image is freely available for indefinite use on the web site.

Contributors will then be invited  to send  digitised versions of particular images for possible inclusion on the glossary. 

If you think you have any images that you would be prepared to offer the project please contact Diane  Peacock [log in to unmask] as soon as possible.

To get an idea of how the glossary will  function and how images will be used , please look at the project team's earlier HEFCE funded BSL/English Glossary for Art and Design on:      www.artsigns.ac.uk
