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 Podcasting

  • Recording podcasts is one way of supporting a range of auditory and visual learning approaches.
  • Podcasting allows flexibility in terms of pace and learning preferences and hence is inclusive.
  • Using podcasts encourages active learning and positive motivation.
