Type: Case Study
This case study details the efforts of Susan Johnson of the University of Worcester to make her courses Women: Family, Work and Politics 1780 – 1945 and Women's Experience: Britain, 1850 – 1976 more accessible to a diverse student body. This project was conceived as a response to concerns raised amongst staff by the increasingly diverse range of students with regard to their educational backgrounds, life experiences, abilities and specific learning difficulties. Also it was a response to an aspect of the modular degree system which can mean that students taking the same module do not necessarily know each other, may never have met, nor will necessarily do so in the future.
