This workshop looks more closely at the needs all learners share and suggests a framework for auditing current practice and for planning improvements.
Before you start
On the grid, use the boxes on the right to indicate the extent to which your current practice recognises and takes account of each need. Is addressing it an integral part of your teaching, do you address it sometimes, or not at all? Use the last box to record any additional needs you have identified during your reflections on this subject, or ones that may be specific to the particular group of learners you are targeting.
On the completed audit sheet, highlight the areas which would benefit from development. From those areas, prioritise one or two that you feel you could begin to tackle right away with your target groups. Enter these on your copy of the Action Plan, together with timescales and responsibilities. You can use the Action Plan later to review progress in implementing your chosen developments and to evaluate their effectiveness.
Over a period of time, use the documents to select and monitor further areas for improvement.
