Designing learning materials


We are employimg a growing number of people from culturally and academically diverse backgrounds and also a number who have dyslexia. We would like to review out course materials, particularly handouts, to ensure that they are as inclusive as possible. Can anyone offer any guidance or suggest possible sources of help for a workshop that we are hoping to run for trainers?

  1. LSC/ Local educational contacts
    We have recently been considering similar issues within my organisation. We have developed great contacts within our local colleges who have been able to help us rethink how we communicate. I would suggest you try and contact the same groups in your areas or I can put you in touch with our contact in the West Midlands if that helps.

  2. material design is only part of the picture
    designing for diversity is really designing for inclusion. Looking in some detail at individual learning needs and prefered learning styles, having a variety of mechamisms for delivering your message, and pre-programme consultation with participants about barriers to learning will greatly assist

  3. Learning Style Analysis/Multiple Intelligences
    The analysis of individual learning style and intelligence profile describes the diversity of learning need. Finding out learners’ unique preferences and talents is the foundation to effective input, processing and recall of information. Once established, this defines the material which will best suit each person. I have several years experience in learning styles and MI with learners of all ages and can point you to resources which could help you match your training to your leaner needs.
