Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning

 

The Disability Resource Centre facilitates a suite of short courses on teaching and supporting disabled students.

All courses for the 2020-21 academic year will be delivered on MS Teams.

 

Inclusive Teaching: Disabled Students (briefing)

With increasing student numbers and a diverse student body it is harder and harder to respond to all disabled students on an individual basis. This participative 1.5-hour workshop identifies where barriers could exist for disabled students. It provides an opportunity to discuss best practice and any concerns relating to your area of work. The session focuses on practical strategies and advance planning to create more inclusive learning environments.

This workshop runs once during Michaelmas Term and once during Lent Term.

Teaching Students with ADHD (briefing)

This 1.25-hour workshop considers the academic barriers experienced by students with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). It covers a range of teaching environments and increases your awareness of best practice in implementing support. Most importantly it gives practical advice about best practice to ensure an effective learning environment for all involved.

This workshop runs once during Lent Term.

Inclusive Teaching: Students with Specific Learning Difficulties (briefing)

This 1.5-hour workshop looks at ways of working effectively with students with specific learning difficulties (SpLD). Increasing nubmers of all disabled, including those with SpLD, means that it is less feasible to rely on individual adjustments. Consequently, this workshop focuses on practical changes based on inclusive teaching practice which enable students to achieve their potential and have a fulfilling Cambridge experience.

There are multiple versions of this course you could attend depending on the students you teach:

Book onto "Teaching Students with Specific Learning Difficulties" (focus on reading & research, essay writing and dissertations, including postgraduate)

Book onto "Teaching Postgraduate Students with Specific Learning Difficulties" (focus on dissertations and PhDs, reading & research, and laboratories & fieldwork)

Book onto "Teaching STEM Students with Specific Learning Difficulties" (focus on reading & research, laboratories & fieldwork, maths strategies & essay strategies)

Book onto "Teaching Arts & Humanities Students with Specific Learning Difficulties" (focus on reading & research, essay writing, and language learning)
