Description

Erasmus+ staff training for Technical Staff

Glasgow, 9th and 10th April 2018

Technicians Diversity and Wellbeing:

The role that the technical community plays in supporting a diverse student body.


It is with great pleasure that Glasgow School of Art invite you to join technical staff from leading European institutions for two days of development and networking.

Through a series of case studies and discussion sessions, open dialogue and tours of the GSA technical facilities we will be exploring ways in which technical staff can approach supporting a diversifying student body.

Key questions will include:


  • What is the role of technical staff in pastoral care?
  • How do we plan for inclusivity and embed inclusive practice?
  • How do we support wellbeing in our workshop design and support approach?
  • How do we maintain a staff cohort that represents our student body?


But first and foremost our meeting is a great opportunity to share experiences, to exchange insights and for networking

Who is it for?:

Student facing technical staff who wish to develop and explore the unique role we play in art and design education.

We have capacity for 40 attendees.
