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.

Reasonable adjustments

Examples from Giving feedback

  • Have policies that allow additional feedback as a 'reasonable adjustment'.
  • Offer verbal explanation of written feedback where necessary.
  • Encourage students to see Academic Support tutors where appropriate.
