This workshop will be run by Nathan Ghann, University of Hertfordshire, and Donna Carty, Challenge Consultancy.
Nathan currently coordinates the Hertfordshire Business School Student Development Programme. Although available to all students, it is positively promoted to BME and at-risk students in particular, with the aim of raising attainment. His work won the Vice Chancellor Award for Outstanding Service in Support of Students 2015, and he has recently been nominated for Tutor of the Year. Nathan will be sharing practical solutions to many of the questions arising from the Success for All work at NTU:
- How can we engage hard to reach and at-risk students?
- How can we scaffold the relationship between student and tutor?
- What is most effective in building student confidence?
Many of the answers to these questions have come from Nathan's experience in working with students across the country. His flagship tour 'How On Earth Do I Get A First?' has been delivered to over 2,000 students from over 20 higher education institutions. His passion for students comes from his own personal journey of struggling academically before going on to achieve a First, and then be selected as one of the Top Ten Most Outstanding Graduates in the UK. His talk has received very positive reviews from students, including those at NTU.
In response to feedback from staff that they would like to know more about unconscious bias, this event - run in conjunction with the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) team - will begin with an unconscious bias workshop with Donna Carty from Challenge Consultancy.
