Students in discussion

Dyslexia video: "Students taking the lead with their supervisor.." Duration: 1 minute : 31 seconds

Students taking the lead with their supervisor.

Teaching methods

Inclusive teaching:

  • Be willing to ask how a student approaches their learning and negotiate the best way to tackle a problem.
  • Consider carefully the kinds of topic, e.g. for projects and dissertations, that best suits the learning approaches of an individual student, e.g. a literature review or practical project.

Reasonable adjustments:

  • Be aware that students will not remember a lot of verbally presented information unless it is recorded in some way.
  • Be willing to discuss how to do this and be open to their recording your discussion.
  • Be willing to advise on reading and writing strategies appropriate for your discipline as well as on content.
