Our popular Inclusive learning and teaching 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 student engagement and partnership 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.

Introduction to EDI in Teaching and Learning
Institutions and individual practitioners face new and ongoing challenges in providing inclusive teaching and learning.
These two-part workshops will provide an introduction to the current HE landscape, EDI regulations and responsibilities, and some of the key EDI challenges facing the sector. The session will introduce delegates to critical pedagogies, positionality and privilege as well as providing opportunities to analyse their own knowledge and understanding and reflect on their own professional practice.
Inclusive and Equitable Assessment and Feedback
Institutions and individual practitioners face new and ongoing challenges in providing effective, rigorous, and inclusive assessment and feedback to learners.
These two-part workshops will introduce the latest literature, practitioner learning, and sector insights to support participants develop their reflective and innovative practice. ‘Feedback’ and ‘assessment’ will be examined both as distinct areas of challenge and development, and as related elements of student learning. Participants will also have the opportunity to critically apply their learning to a ‘live’ assignment or practice used in their institution.
