EDI workshop 2

Introduction to EDI in Teaching and Learning Workshops

Explore what inclusive learning and teaching is – or could be – and gain an overview of key sector contexts and challenges. Participants will be supported to reflect on their own practice or approach in a friendly space, and learn from the latest research and case studies.

These two-part workshops will provide an introduction to the current HE landscape; Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) duties and opportunities; and some of the key EDI challenges facing the sector. Delegates will be introduced to different approaches and understandings of inclusive pedagogy, build confidence in discussing issues of inclusion and equity, and provided opportunities to analyse and reflect on their own professional practice.
