Project AMP gives a voice to students hard of hearing
Picture yourself in one of the University of Oregon’s giant lecture halls, excited for your first day of class. You find a seat somewhere in the middle, and when the professor walks out, you’re ready to finally learn something about your newly-decided major. But when he starts to talk, you can’t hear a thing. The sound completely dissipates before it gets anywhere near your ears, along with any knowledge you could have possibly absorbed.
For students who are hard of hearing, this is a particularly challenging problem that they face every day. This is why UO has recently launched an initiative called Project AMP, short for Amplify My Professor, which encourages professors to use microphones in lecture halls.
Project AMP is a product of the College of Education and UO Chapter of NSSLHA, the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association. The goal of this project is to raise awareness for the need for microphones or other amplification in lectures in order to help students who are hard of hearing have a better classroom experience.
