Successful Student Diversity: Case Studies of Practice in Learning and Teaching and Widening Participation. Good Practice. Guidance for Senior Managers and Practitioners.
Powney, Janet, Ed.
This document provides examples of practice to improve planning at a school or departmental level in widening participation (including disability) and learning and teaching. It is not prescriptive, but identifies common principles that institutions funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England can adapt to their own circumstances to help them recruit and support a diverse range of students. The guide is based on 23 case studies in higher education institutions. What emerges clearly from the case studies is how adjusting methods of learning, teaching, and assessment to meet the needs of a very wide range of students, including mature and disabled students, is benefiting all students. Changes of this sort require a culture shift in many departments and a strategic approach to improve services for students. The first attachment (annex) lists members of the steering group, and the second contains list of abbreviations. (SLD)
