Institutions and individual practitioners face a continuous challenge in engaging with students, in the classroom, in extra-curricula activities and in the leadership and governance of institutions. Making sure we provide accessible and inclusive methods via which to engage with our students, is even more paramount as we enter this new phase on virtual and hybrid teaching models.
This two-part workshop from Advance HE will introduce the latest literature, practitioner learning, and sector insights to support participants in ensuring inclusivity for all as they embark on co-production and partnership initiatives with students. The course will address the challenges of an inclusive curriculum, adopting anti-racist policies and bias in student to staff feedback. Participants will also have the opportunity to critically apply their learning to a ‘live’ assignment or initiative within in their own institution.
The blended module involves two half-day online workshops, and c. 1 hour of independent reflection and reading
Who is delivering the course?
Who should attend?
This module is ideal for programme or module leaders, academic developers, QA or EDI teams, student reps/officers or similar interested in enhancing their student partnership work in learning, teaching and assessment.
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.
On completion, participants should be able to:
- Understand the wider sector context for student partnership and co-production approaches in LTA which are inclusive of different student groups, needs, and identities.
- Identify conceptual and practical links between ‘inclusive student engagement’ in daily learning environments, and engagement through more strategic partnership work.
- Critically evaluate and reflect on their approaches to student partnership design and practice
- Discuss issues of inclusion and equity in LTA with other educators and students with care and confidence.
