Affect the learning process. Out of this need to assess a students learning ability and other factors that may affect his learning, whether positively or otherwise, the use of a unique individual learning plan that takes into account and coincides within the framework of their learning style and abilities and skills.
The ILP will help 2 identify a student’s strengths and areas where they may need extra help, In theory this should make the learning experience beneficial to the students and in turn result in a multiple learning environment with successive outcomes for all who are willing to engage. Reviewing the legislation relating to inclusion, equality and diversity reinforces the fact that we are all equals reminding us different needs does not disqualify us from a fair and equal chance in life irrelevant of our backgrounds, which is fantastic.
How I could develop my practical skills as a result of this module/session: My initial thoughts on preparing myself in dealing with needs and wants of my students to ensure success in my classes, that need to make sure that I am observant of all my students so as I can tap into their interpersonal skills and build a trust with my students where they feel that we can work together to ensure their success, as their success is my success so inevitably we are in this together, their success will enable them to progress and my courses to flourish.
An ILP presumes that the needs of individual students are different, and thus, must be differently addressed, giving the tutor and students a great start in self learning and developing resources to meet an individual’s needs, further study into various types of learners and methods and techniques that aid the learning cycle will benefit my understanding of social and cultural diversity and difference , ultimately we all want our students to succeed. How I could develop my knowledge and understanding as a result of this module/session:
This session has given me a greater confidence in my abilities as I started the session today with a famous interviewing ice breaker, I had to present the idea in front of my fellow students who were put into groups of two to interview each other and present findings about each other, this was fun I really enjoyed it even though I felt a little nervous. My tutor said I did well just needed to put fear to one side and take just a tad more control, but raising your voice at adults to get their attention is a little more nerve racking that a class full of children.
Finally I volunteered to start next week’s session, as my class mates seemed a little shy to volunteer. I will continue to develop my knowledge and understanding on Roles and responsibilities of a teacher and adapting methods and techniques to compliment the learner through progressive and successive learning. I intended to use my course to develop my interpersonal skills and teaching strategies for all types of learners by working with and analyzing my fellow students through interaction at appropriate times in the sessions.
