Equality Diversity and Inclusion Colloquia

Our colloquia series focuses on Equality Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) areas of interest within teaching and learning and are for anyone wishing to improve their knowledge and upskill their practice in these key areas.

Our colloquium events offer staff a useful forum to encourage the exchange and dissemination of different ways of thinking about key Equality Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) challenges and new approaches.


Each colloquium is facilitated by a Senior Advisor from Advance HE with specific expertise in the area being discussed. The day will feature a keynote presentation from a leading practitioner in each area, followed by themed sessions showcasing case studies from across the sector. Delegates will have the opportunity to learn from leading practitioners in the sector, debate priority issues and learn from cutting-edge initiatives.


The colloquia provide practitioners with access to an open and supportive environment and valuable peer network to share and discuss contemporary practice and initiatives. They enable participants to develop a principled, evidence-informed approach to devising subsequent support and guidance for change in enhancing student success in HE.

Who: Teaching practitioners including: heads of departments, academic programme leaders and developers, lecturers, academic and support staff, and learning technologists.
