Working with Learners with Diverse Needs
Part of the SSSC Practice Learning Qualification suite of learning objects.
With increased recognition of inequality and legislation to combat it, there are now more specific responsibilities to be met by educators and educational settings in order to ensure that learners are not assumed to be one-dimensional. Specifically, educators and educational settings need to demonstrate recognition that their learner population is diverse in terms of gender, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, and religion/faith/belief. This recognition needs to be demonstrated through:
* adjustments to the physical environment and learning technologies available
* the content of the educational materials themselves
* the attitudes and values of educators towards learners
