Embedding Equality and Diversity in the Curriculum – involving students in curriculum design

Description

The HEA in Scotland’s Embedding Equality and Diversity in the Curriculum project supports the development of a curriculum that recognises the diversity of the student population and the need to produce graduates fit to work in a global environment.

Student involvement in the curriculum development process is an important contribution to ensure that the curriculum is truly inclusive. There are a range of tools and resources available to support the development of an inclusive curriculum and this event aimed to help people use these resources to take forward the work from a student point of view.

It was aimed at university students, student officers and SA staff.

The event aimed to help participants to:

  • identify the rationale for active student involvement in designing an inclusive curriculum;
  • use the resources available to academics and explore how they can be of value to students;
  • plan how to take the work back to universities to drive it forward from the student perspective.

You can view the materials from the day:
