Diversity, Pedagogy and the Creative Arts: perceptions and experiences of diverse students at UAL

final show display

12 Mar 2018

5pm to 6.30pm

This workshop considers teacher diversity at UAL from the student perspective. The session will explore findings from a small scale research study that asked students what impact greater staff diversity would make to their learning and university experiences and how this might affect their aspirations to enter teaching as a career.
The workshop will focus on the student narratives to gain greater understanding of their perceptions of diversity, the curriculum, staff and a sense of belonging within the institution.

Siobhan Clay is an Educational Developer in the Exchange at UAL with interests in inclusive pedagogies, attainment, transition and the student experience. This workshop explores findings from her Social Justice and Education masters dissertation completed at the Institutue of Education at UCL in September 2016.
