Overview

This two-part workshop supports staff who are leading others in change efforts around inclusive teaching and learning. Participants will explore issues such as different approaches to change; inclusive leadership; positionality and power; working with different stakeholders and disciplines; evaluation, and accountability. Participants will also have the opportunity to analyse and explore their own ‘live’ issues.

Who should attend?

This module is ideal for HE staff in senior or strategic roles, including DVCs and PVCs of Learning and Teaching, Heads of Schools or Faculties and EDI leads with responsibility for implementing large-scale ILTA change. For in-house delivery, student leaders are welcome and valued, where the institution feels appropriate.

While this session will primarily reflect the equality landscape and terminology of the UK higher education sector, there will be underlying issues and approaches that will be of interest to our global members.

Learning outcomes

On completion, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the wider sector context, drivers and priorities for inclusive learning, teaching and assessment enhancement in higher education.
  • Identify different institutional or disciplinary interventions available to enhance or embed inclusion and equity into LTA
  • Explore and anticipate common challenges in leading on inclusive LTA, such as: building a shared vision amongst staff and students; holistic embedding of strategy and action; ownership and accountability; disciplinary discretion.
  • Critically reflect on their own personal leadership skills and positioning in this area.

Content

The blended module involves two half-day online interactive workshops, and around 1 hour of independent reflection and reading. Indicative content:

  • Understanding ‘change’ for equitable and inclusive education: learning from what has and hasn’t ‘worked’
  • Working with stakeholders on inclusion: opportunities and challenges
  • Being an inclusive leader: exploring personal positionality, power, and authenticity
  • Real World application: structured independent and small group reflection to apply learning to your current work
  • ‘Spotlight’ learning from literature, case studies, and Advance HE projects are likely to engage with topics such as anti-racism, disability and accessibility, and international inclusion.
