|Unit chair:||T Ollis|
This unit is designed to examine the diversity of learners and their contexts. Learners vary across a number of characteristics such as culture, gender, age, learning styles and preferences. Contexts of learning vary in the situation in which learning occurs, such as workplace learning, community based learning, learning within institutional settings, flexible and distance learning. Additionally, the learning outcomes pursued by learners and their instructors vary in nature.
Specifically, the unit is designed to provide the following outcomes for students:
Assignment 1, 3000 words, 50%, The first piece of work involves a critical analysis of one or more dimensions of learner diversity, addressing the issues that underlie and define that diversity, and how they may affect the design and delivery of a training response. The first piece of work would be expected to be based on theoretical treatments of dimensions of diversity.
Assignment 2, 3000 words, 50%, Development of a Responsive Training Plan. The second piece of work involves the development of a specific training response to a particular group of learners who are expected to participate in an identified program of training.
