The following are case studies of students who may have particular difficulties.

Student with a specific learning difficulty Student finds reading can be time consuming and tiring due to learning difficulty.
International student Student finds reading in a second language time consuming and tiring.

Solution for students

These students should focus on texts identified as key by the lecturer, and those additional texts that are most important for their research interests. Additionally, they should begin reading as early in the module as possible.

 

Action plan for lecturer

Provide an annotated reading list that identifies key texts, and those relevant to different sub-topics within the modul as early as possible.
