Providing Learning Support for Blind or Visually Impaired Students Undertaking Fieldwork and Related Activities
Introduction to this Guide
Who this guide is for
The guide is written for two kinds of reader:
- Academics involved in the design and delivery of fieldwork. The guide is intended primarily for academics working in geography, geology and environmental science. However, its content may also be of interest to academics in other disciplines that involve fieldwork, including: archaeology, anthropology, architecture and ecology.
- Disability specialists. It is hoped that the focused discussion of fieldwork in this guide will provide insights into a form of study that may not be familiar — at least in detail — to the staff who advise staff and students and assess student needs in the broad area of disability.
The contents of this guide may also be of some use to other support staff who are involved in some way either with the learning needs of visually impaired students, or with field teaching. (See Support Networks.)
