1. Be able to plan inclusive learning and teaching sessions.
(1.1) The need of the learners was identified as having to have investigators who could adopt a methodical approach, which is essential whilst carrying out equipment failure investigations. This was used as my session aim:
‘This learning session will teach you a methodical approach of investigating equipment failure’.
When…show more content… I gave verbal instruction in the form of reading the detail on the PowerPoint slides and further emphasising the main points by verbally expanding further when required. I used the investigator pack visual aid to reinforce the spoken word and in conjunction with the PowerPoint slides listed the contents within it. Each item was shown to the learners in turn with discussion taken place about the use of each item. I assessed that this would be the most appropriate method of introducing these items as giving the items to the learners within the classroom environment may have led to a loss of control within the classroom and would have allowed the learners to see the items during the planned assessment later in the session.
(2.3) Throughout the session I posed and received questions on all parts of the session including the preliminary points. I listened to the entire question and ensuring that I understood before giving a considered answer. Further emphasis was placed on the learners to ask questions by adding the point to the ground rules during the preliminary stage of the session. After giving an answer I further backed up the answer by restating the initial information from the PowerPoint. Prior to advancing a slide a further opportunity was given for the learners to ask questions. Although no further needs were stated within my session I feel that I would have been able to adapt the session as necessary if required
