Event description

Description

This session in the Continuing Professional Development series for staff at the University of Glasgow will look at the growing imperative in HE Institutions to challenge assumptions about racial and civilisational hierarchies and their impact on academic study. The session will consider, through discussion and practical activities, why it might be important to challenge the historical contexts of knowledge and how, through considering course content, including biographies, you might make small changes to courses that can represent a more diverse student population and engage all students in challenging assumptions about knowledge.

‘I’m from Arts and I’d come because: I want ideas about how to ensure that my course is appealing to a diverse student body.’‘I’m from Science & Engineering, and I’d come because: I’m interested in examining the biases we have surrounding Western scientific approaches.’

Tea and coffee will be provided.

Speaker: Dr Carol Collins
