Dr. Michael E. Skyer
Dr. Michael E. Skyer is a teacher educator who, for the past seven years, has worked with deaf and nondeaf graduate students from around the country and the world, all of whom aspire to become future teachers of the deaf. Skyer's dissertation focused on grounded theories and case studies of visuality and multimodality in deaf pedagogies in higher education contexts. Prior to teacher education, Skyer taught writing at the undergraduate level for five years, and a mixture of public and residential (pK-12) deaf education settings, including the itinerant model, for three years. Skyer notes with amusement that he has taught the "LEGO age range," that is, his students are between the ages of 4 and 90, including pre-kindergarten children and inclusive of gerontological and community-based disability education. Skyer was recently featured in Scientific American for his insights into the digital contexts of deaf education concomitant with the COVID 19 pandemic.
