This year we are focusing on teaching practices that enable all ARU students, whatever their background, to succeed and fulfil their potential. The TeachMeets will be held in Cambridge and Chelmsford.
The TeachMeet will start with lunch, followed by the keynote 'How inclusive is my module? … and yours?' by Dr Cathy Smith, and micro and nano presentations.
Welcome – Sharon Waller
How inclusive is my module? … and yours?' by Dr Cathy Smith, University of Northampton
Micro and nano presentations and discussions
This presentation will explore the journey Cathy went through to make her third year module on Witchcraft and Heresy in the Early Modern period more inclusive. As a non-expert in inclusive practice, this is an honest analysis of the ways in which her curriculum, its assessments and her feedback were analysed with students to try and build a more inclusive teaching and learning experience to ensure student confidence and success. Cathy will also talk about some early results from the redesign and some of the hurdles she faced along the way.
Dr Cathy Smith is the Deputy Dean of Faculty of Education and Humanities at the University of Northampton. She chairs the University of Northampton's Inclusive Student Experience Group and is working on a series of projects around closing the BAME attainment gap.
