The Centre for Academic Development and Quality and TILT are delighted to be hosting a one-day Success for All Conference on inclusive curricula and pedagogies. The conference will offer a valuable opportunity for colleagues at NTU to ask questions, join in lively discussions, and share ideas across disciplines on supporting the success of all of our students. We will have two excellent keynote speakers: Jane McNeil, our Director for Academic Development and Dr. Gurnam Singh, Principal Lecturer in Social Work at Coventry University. The conference will be an ideal opportunity for colleagues to go ‘beyond the data’ to understand how best we can make students’ learning experiences at NTU more inclusive through curriculum design, pedagogy and assessment.
Keynote speaker Dr Gurnam Singh, Principal Lecturer in Social Work at Coventry University, and Visiting Fellow in Race and Education, University of Arts, London, will bring the inclusivity agenda into sharp focus, sharing valuable insights from working on this area in Higher Education (HE). Dr Singh has an international reputation for his work on equality and diversity in HE, and is currently part of a 'Social Mobility Academic Reference Group’ . This influential group was established by the Government to advise on the proposed changes to HE identified in the Green Paper, following on from the Prime Minister’s 2020 goals to diversify the sector.
Resources from the event will be uploaded shortly.
