“One of the most beneficial effects of the course has been to help me understand the process of writing assignments from the point of view of a student. It has given me much more empathy and I will be reflecting on the experience to help me better support my learners.”
“Although doing this course has been quite a learning curve and more time consuming than I initially envisaged, I am so glad to have done it! I am very close to submitting my assignment portfolio, initial issues with ICT caused by using a Mac but now working from alternative computer, so all is well. Just have to make sure the assignment load up works!!”
“I have really enjoyed the course. I have found the reading really stimulating, interesting and informative. I feel like I have learned a lot and it has helped me understand and empathise much more with the challenges adults with dyslexia face. I now feel much more equipped and enabled to support my students with the development of their study skills to enable independence and metacognition.”
“I have found the course invaluable in developing my tutoring skills and interaction with my students. It’s been great to be able to say I’m working towards a deadline too when they’ve got essay deadlines looming, and we could then share strategies and approaches for organisation etc. I particularly enjoyed designing the structural activity and discussing it with students. It also helped to focus my wider reading and to research different aspects that I may not have previously considered.”
“Thank you for such an illuminating and stimulating unit. You have encouraged us to engage fully with the challenge of developing writing skills in dyslexic learners, and I have found a number of very useful techniques which I am looking forward to using with my students. I also enjoyed interacting with the Unit Forum which was a compulsory element in this run of courses: a good thing as it makes the interactive aspect of the course come alive much more! The assignment also made me think about how to improve my practice.”
