Equality and Diversity
Designing for Diversity: Reflecting Cardiff University's Diversity when Teaching
Are you confident that when designing your teaching that you are meeting the needs of all of your students? Would you like to have the opportunity to talk through any concerns about your choice of resources? This interactive workshop is designed to support teaching staff who wish to explore these and other questions about the inclusivity of their teaching sessions. Drawing on the ideology of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) participants will consider ways in which course and session design can better enable them to meet the needs of all students, including those with protected characteristics as set out in the Equality Act 2010. The workshop will offer participants a safe environment in which to examine how learning strategies and resources can contribute to both the academic success and well-being of all students. The focus of each workshop may differ, dependent on the needs of those attending. Participants are encouraged to raise issues of interest prior to the workshop so that these can be included. It is possible to run this workshop for groups of staff wishing to address a specific issue of inclusion and design. Please contact the workshop co-ordinator to discuss this.
This workshop will be of use to all staff involved with teaching students as well as those in charge of Programmes of Study. It will complement other Equality and Diversity Sessions as well as the session ‘Creating an Inclusive Environment’. As a follow on from this workshop it is possible to have individual support in curriculum design from colleagues within the Staff Development Unit. Please ask following the workshop.
If you are intending to apply for Fellowship of the HEA then this workshop might support your application in the following areas A1, A2, K2, V1 and V2.
