Activity 4.1 – Physical challenges (a)

I have divided the challenges into two groups simply because I see the physical challenges as ones being more eaisly resolved.

This is a list of the challenges I have devised from my readings and from what I have thought about from a student’s perspective. I have tried to provide an overview but I am sure the list is not exhaustive. In relation to my own context, I think that my AR students are likely to need support with tutorials and study:

CHALLENGE COMMON TO ALL POST-COMPULSORY EDUCATION SPECIFIC TO CAMPUS BASED MODULES SPECIFIC TO ONLINE  LEARNING RELATED TO SPECIFIC SUBJECTS/CONTEXTS
Transportation to Campus – distance, method

√  May be an issue for science based subjects e.g. lab work

Finding way around campus – signs, distance, directions

Registration-form filling, accessing services/support

Lectures – hearing, seeing, taking notes, understanding, concentration, taking part in practical activities

√  On the basis that some OU courses have face-to-face tutorials

√  Will be specific to campus based modules

√  May be an issue with Maths based subjects e.g. mathematical expressions

Library – accessing, locating books, reading books, directions,  using computers/internet (physical and navigation)

√  On the basis that both types of learning have access to libraries

Study – using computer/internet (physical and navigation), interacting with online information/activities, organisation, time management, reading, listening to audio, seeing visuals, writing essays, expressing ideas

√ On the basis that the study methods are similar for both types of learning

√  Will be specific where the course is delivered wholly online

√ May be an issue with Maths based subjects e.g. mathematical expressions

Social – distance, directions, communication, taking part

√  On the basis that social interaction is part of the learning experience for both types of learning

√  Will be specific where the course is delivered wholly online
