Portfolio Activity

Develop a learner profile for a group of your learners.

  • Prepare this in either a diagrammatic, written or audiovisual format and explain what it means.
For example, you could prepare a mindmap to illustrate the design. (See 15 best mindmapping tools.)
  • Include demographic information (gender, age, ethnicity, location etc.), learners' characteristics, learner preferences and needs and skills for learning.
  • Describe an example of learner diversity in your context where you believe that access to learning may be compromised or inequitable.
  • This may relate to the subject, resources, technologies, learning culture, socio-economics, ethnicity, assessments, learner motivation, engagement and abilities etc.
  • Discuss what your learners might need to access the learning environment more fully, and what you can provide.
  • What are the barriers?
  • What support is needed - pastoral and academic?
  • How will you ensure that deep learning opportunities are provided?
  • Add to your portfolio - your explorations, descriptions, discussions and reflections.
  • Request feedback by sharing the link to your learner profile on the Moodle discussion forum. (Link below.)
