Inclusive Teaching Practices: supporting students with visual impairments

Inclusive teaching means equal opportunities for all your learners

This course enables educators and teaching support staff in schools and further and higher education establishments to acquire or refresh their knowledge when working with students with visual impairments. It explores the challenges of inclusive teaching practices and provides information essential in meeting those demands. 

Course overview

The course provides an opportunity to explore themes fundamental to inclusive education when working with visually impaired learners. These include:

  • Reflection on barriers to learning, and practices to address these.
  • Adapting the classroom or lecture theatre environment to support visually impaired students.
  • Identifying the role of assistive technology, and how to best support its use in the classroom.
  • Recognising the importance of effective communication and the actions needed to support this process.
  • Supporting the wider student experience in terms of fostering well-being and social engagement.
  • Creating accessible and inclusive digital learning materials as part of the differentiation process.

An opportunity to develop

Each of the above learning outcomes provides educators, support providers, IT staff, student union representatives and organisational staff with an opportunity to explore, discuss and challenge concepts relevant to meeting the needs of visually impaired learners in education.

It enables you to create accessible resources that improve learning opportunities for all students, not only those with visual impairments and provides a platform for the evaluation of personal and organisational competence in the provision of specialised learning opportunities.
