Talking about Teaching
Talking about Teaching is a programme of events, led by nationally recognised speakers, that is designed to provide new ideas and promote discussion about a range of aspects of learning and teaching.
Issues of inclusivity for Staff and Students led by Professor Kalwant Bhopal, University of Southampton
This session will explore aspects of inclusion and how they can work in practice for both staff and students in Higher Education. The session will be based on the analysis of data from two different research projects that examined the experiences of Black and minority ethnic academics in universities. It will also explore the experiences of a minority group of learners (Gypsy, Roma and Traveller students) in schools and consider how teachers and institutions can provide an inclusive pedagogy for these groups. The session will explore positive ways to develop inclusive practice in schools and universities.
The talk will draw upon current literature and on-going research relating to inclusivity and diversity in Education at both Secondary and HE levels.
