The BAM MKE committee would like to invite members to participate in a series of workshops to share and co-create best practice with respect to inclusive approaches to teaching and learning.
A variety of agencies have produced guidance around inclusive approaches to teaching and learning* (this includes student transition into, through and out of HE) and institutions across the sector have undertaken steps to address issues of inclusivity. However despite this increased focus, inequalities remain in the extent to which students from different backgrounds benefit from and experience HE.
The National Strategy for Student Access and Support (DBIS, 2014) advocates that the sector takes an evidence based practice approach to addressing issues of inclusivity. The strategy highlights the need for institutions to be working together in partnership to address issues of inclusivity, either co-designing initiatives or sharing best practice.
In light of this and in recognition that our community faces its own unique set of challenges, for example the size of cohorts in business and management and the large numbers of international students which form part of our student body, we would like to bring members together to explore the challenges that we face and to share experiences.
We will be running a series of four virtual workshops in the academic year 2021/22 that will lead to the publication of a series of case studies that we propose to publish in an edited book. The first workshop will bring members together to examine the different themes through which inclusivity can be explored and the challenges faced by academics and students in business and management schools. The remaining workshops will bring members together around the themes to explore practice and to identify case studies to be included in the publication.
Following the first workshop guidance will be given on the format for writing cases, these will be developed by contributors alongside the workshops.
The first workshop will be held on Tuesday 1st February 2021 at 14:00 (UK time). By signing up to this workshop you are not making a commitment to all four. We will agree the time and dates of these with attendees after this initial workshop. Please follow the link to register for the workshop.
