Module design.

Designing modules involves thinking about different teaching activities for student learning.

Here you will find insights into dyslexia and examples of how some staff have designed ways of teaching for everyone that have addressed common issues for dyslexic students. For example, tutors and dyslexic students talk about how they use podcasts and WebCT.

You may find that you can adapt these techniques to suit your own disciplinary context.

Inclusive teaching

Examples from How students learn

  • Offer flexibility in the ways that students can learn core lecture material.
  • Be aware of the different kinds of learning that your discipline demands and how this might impact on dyslexic learners.
  • Be aware of how dyslexic students perform in assessments in comparison with the average. Where the results of dyslexic students are below average consider whether the learning context may be implicated.
