This Learning Circle, which was led by Jagjeet Jutley-Neilson, is currently transitioning into a Network.
This WIHEA Learning Circle aimed to bring together academics that were interested in exploring the Learning Experience of Students who identify as having Specific Learning Differences/Neurodivergent. Neurodiversity or specific learning differences is a term that is commonly used to describe people with Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) including Asperger’s, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dyspraxia, Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder (AD(H)D); co-occurrence amongst these is also common.
The aims of this Learning Circle were to explore:
- What is the Learning Experience of students who identify as being Neurodivergent (Specific Learning Differences) at Warwick (e.g. transition, curriculum, student opportunity, wellbeing, SU and wider student experience)?
- Explore existing literature (e.g. terminology, lived experiences)
- How do we support Neurodivergent (Specific Learning Differences) students once they are here and post two years after graduation (student cycle)?
- What are staff experiences and approaches to teaching inclusively; do they feel supported, how do staff design course/modules that are inclusive for all?
- What are the experiences of staff who teach and identify as Neurodivergent (Specific Learning Differences)?
