Module Description
The aim of this module is to support adult educators and migrant support workers to recognise the changing role of educators within diverse communities of online learners, and compile all required knowledge to embark on the task of delivering inclusive online learning. The activities presented in this module provide front-line educators with access to a range of tools that they can use in their work with migrant learners. Through critical reflection and creative self-directed learning, the learners are expected to identify and appraise personal strengths and weaknesses, which will inform their professional practice towards inclusive online learning. The aim is to support adult educators and migrant support workers, so that they feel comfortable facilitating non-formal, online inclusive activities for their diverse communities of learners. The practical approaches and techniques applied in the sessions are strategically selected and can be transferred by the educators to enrich their own teaching practices. The intention is for the educators to critically reflect on their own practices and identify and evaluate future options and opportunities to grow and expand as digitally competent educators, who offer inclusive learning experiences.
