Chapter 10

Student diversity in SGT

INTRODUCTION
In a small group the tutor is responsible for making the mode of study appropriate and applicable to all the students in the class. Our global and accessible universities offer the opportunity for a greater mix of people than ever before. People from different countries and educational cultures join the SGT session with widely varying expectations of how to work in a tutorial or problems class. Some students may join the class expecting the tutor to 'lecture' and may find it very difficult to 'challenge' or 'question' what the tutor says because they have no previous experience of formalized collaborative learning.The tutor must work to make the class a 'safe' place to raise issues related to the course for all the students regardless of their gender, religion or culture. The course material, resources and the teaching environment must be accessible for all. In this chapter we indicate some of the important issues to be considered and suggest ways for SGT tutors to adapt their teaching and so ensure that their classes are inclusive and productive for their students.The chapter gives specific attention to the needs of the following groups of students in SGT:
■ multidisciplinary and mixed ability groups
■ international students and students for whom English is not a first language
■ mature and returning students and 'new learners' (e.g. entering FE and HE through access routes and foundation degree programmes)
■ disabled students (e.g. those with impairments such as dyslexia, a hearing or a sight deficiency).
