Module summary

Module EDUC 5073M considers the implications of deafness for individual learning and achievement, explores ways in which teaching, learning and assessment opportunities can be maximised to facilitate pupil progress. You will gain a knowledge and understanding of ways in which the environment and the use of technology can contribute to the learning experience and what support is needed at particular periods of transition or transfer. You will develop skills in individual planning and the monitoring and assessment of learning, and how this should be shared with other professionals, parents and deaf learners. Awareness of ways in which deafness might impact on behaviour, and strategies for promoting positive behaviour and resilience in the classroom are also considered.This is a blended distance module that involves 12 on-line taught sessions in the VLE, 1 face-to-face study day; 1 face-to-face regional tutorial and 2 on-line synchronous tutorials This module addresses sections 5, 7 of the MQ specifications for specialist teachers of children and young people who are deaf. Practical teaching skills relating to section 6 of the MQ specifications are addressed in the context of the Professional Portfolio (Module EDUC 5076M)

Objectives

The aim of this module is to provide you with an understanding of
