Welcome to Auslan Hub™, your destination for all things Auslan! We embarked on our journey as Tall Giraffe Publishing, fueled by a deep passion to create captivating Auslan books for Deaf and hard-of-hearing children, enabling them to immerse themselves in the joy of reading in their first language. We also recognised the importance of bridging the communication gap between English and Auslan for parents embarking on their own Auslan journey. Today, we have evolved into a comprehensive resource hub, catering to the needs of Auslan classrooms and homes alike. We feel honoured to be connected with a vibrant community of Auslan educators and users, each bringing a unique range of talents, skills, experiences, and knowledge to share.
Kerrie Taylor, the founder of Auslan Hub, serves as a dedicated Auslan teacher in a classroom setting, and is deaf herself. Her qualifications include the successful completion of a comprehensive course in Deaf Studies and Auslan Methodology. This has equipped her with a profound understanding of the linguistic elements of Auslan. Over the years, she has actively pursued continuous Professional Learning to stay abreast of the latest developments in her field.
Collaborating closely with native Auslan peers within the Deaf Community, Kerrie works alongside individuals who bring diverse credentials, including expertise as Auslan classroom teachers (both primary and secondary levels) and university lecturers. These colleagues have presented on various topics such as linguistics, the history of Auslan, and Deaf studies.
Furthermore, Kerrie was a part of the writing team for the Auslan curriculum with ACARA in 2023. This experience has afforded her an extensive understanding and knowledge of effective teaching methods aligned with the achievement standards outlined in the Auslan curriculum.
