Accessibility Module Reflection

5th May 2020

This reflection was contributed as a submission for a 2 Star Badge in Accessibility (Exploring)

Give a brief description of your work context and responsibilities, e.g. your teaching background, experience, type of organisation (e.g. FE college, ACL), subject/curriculum you teach/lead, your learners (skills level, any particular inclusion needs, age range of group, size of group)

I am currently teaching sociology (quite a content-heavy subject) to learners with a broad scope of individual needs and was struggling to create resources suitable for all of my students. One in particular has a hearing impairment and needs particular resources/software to help with their studies. I teach ages 16+.

How will you adapt activities in your teaching context to put into practice learning from the module?

Rather than continuing to use PowerPoint slides and text, I will be using more info graphics, videos, corresponding pictures and interactive quizzes to maintain learner engagement and increase accessibility within the lesson(s).
