Who this event is for
Diversity and inclusion initiatives across all educational sectors have drawn increased interest in recent years. The COVID-19 pandemic has served to spotlight existing inequalities and challenges such as digital poverty, the pivot to online learning, inclusive curriculum, and the increased awareness of wellbeing and mental health issues.
In this webinar, we will explore the opportunities for increased diversity and inclusion across a range of education sectors and will consider the scope for sharing good practice and insights between settings. Join expert practitioners and leading researchers from the fields of primary education, secondary education, higher education, and museum education who will share examples of recent inclusive practice development in their respective fields. We’ll look at creative and evidence-based strategies that can help us start teaching and learning differently. A panel discussion and Q&A on current and future opportunities for sharing good practice between sectors will conclude the webinar.
