Inclusive learning and teaching workshop series

During 2021-22 we will be running a series of workshops focused on equality, diversity and inclusivity topics to support practitioners, managers and leaders within HE institutions across the UK.
Early bird offer 2021-22

Overview

Our new Inclusive learning and teaching EDI workshop series is a suite of five modules that can be taken individually or as a programme of development covering an introduction to EDI in teaching and learning, inclusive and equitable assessment and feedback, inclusive curriculum, inclusive engagement and leading on inclusive teaching and learning. 

These focus on gaining practical experience of connecting EDI with teaching and learning in the context of post-pandemic pedagogy and creating structural EDI change in teaching and learning. Created as a mix of synchronous and asynchronous learning these are aimed at institutions and individuals wanting to build an evidence-based support structure for inclusive teaching and learning. In these workshops we bring together our expert facilitators from both our EDI and T&L teams together with cross-sector learning from our change projects and research.

These workshops will offer practical advice, guidance, policy information, frameworks and toolkits to support positive change within departments, schools, faculties and institutions in areas such as race equality, challenging privilege, and dignity and respect.

Who: All higher education professionals
