Additional Lab Info:
For all ASL Lab information, please view the ASL Lab Portfolio.
San Antonio College is fortunate to have a dedicated ASL/Interpreting lab. Some services are best accessed in person while others can be accessed remotely. It is a great place to view ASL and Interpreting digital resources. The library is extensive and you will find many resources related to Deaf people, Deaf Culture, America Sign Language and Interpreting. Unfortunately, resources may not be checked out; however, other resources are digital files made available through the ASL cources. In order for students to improve both their receptive and expressive sign skills, lab work is incorporated into many of the classes. The additional lab hours help ensure that students have sufficient opportunities to further develop their skills. Everyone is asked to refrain from speaking in the lab or in remote lab hours and communicate solely in sign language.
The primary focus of the lab is to assist San Antonio College students, but members of the Deaf community as well as interpreters are always welcome.
Our on-campus lab has 24 computers in the lab available for student use as well as 6 recording rooms that may be used to record class assignments, projects and tests. There are two full-time lab directors who are Deaf that are available for individual or small group tutoring in face to face or remote appointmets. If you would like to have tutoring on a regular basis, please arrange this with one of the lab directors.
The lab is a place for students to chat with other students both Deaf and hearing or work together on a class project and experience communicating in American Sign Language outside of the classroom. Students have access to the lab to do their homework should they not have the technology at home.
