2b. Understanding Target Learners

2b. An understanding of your target learners

Statements should how you have found out about learners’ needs and the context for their studies, and how you have developed inclusive, accessible and learner-centred approaches that reflect this.

Evidence might include a description of how assistive technologies have been used to support disabled students, how learner feedback has influenced the design of a portfolio, how the needs of work-based learners or overseas students have shaped the curriculum, or records of conversations with product analysts, marketing departments or course teams and the resulting plans for your design. Evidence of changed practice, rather than simply the recognition that this is an important area, is required.
