Alongside Pete Quinn (of Pete Quinn Consulting) and Dr Sophie Brigstocke, University of York, designed, developed and delivered a training course to 80 primary and secondary teachers from across Hong Kong.
Hosted by the Education University of Hong Kong and funded by the Education Board of the Hong Kong Government the course was delivered as a thematic course on specific learning difficulties and intellectual disabilities to English teachers.
320 hours of teaching and practicum mentoring were provided through two delivery periods March and May/June 2018.
The course encompasses more traditional subjects such as the history and definitions of dyslexia alongside contemporary approaches to educational practice; universal design for learning; differentiated teaching; multi-sensory delivery.
Participants then display their learning through practicums within their own schools and observations of other participants’ delivery.
