The Inclusive Sandpit Workshop

Who this event is for

  • Staff - teaching
  • Academic community


John Henry Brookes Building, Headington Campus


The Inclusive Sandpit Workshop aims to give individuals and programme teams time to be intensively creative to inspire and be inspired to co-construct a curriculum, responsive to inclusion to produce graduates that have an enhanced and accessible learning experience. The intention is that The Inclusive Sandpit Workshop will pool and capture collective expertise and progressive circular work.  Team members can be drawn from faculty programme teams, academic and professional roles across Brookes. The Inclusive Sandpit Workshop will be dedicated time for all to enhance their curriculum offer, share good practice, network, as well as highlight innovative inclusive pedagogy within Brookes.


Heads of Departments and Programme Leaders may wish to select their Inclusive Sandpit teams prior to the day or individuals may decide to work cross-disciplinary and be assigned a team on the day.  A note for Professional Services: please encourage your colleagues to join us on the day to support their faculty link areas.


The Sandpit will be facilitated by Dr Graham Holden, former Director of Learning and Teaching at Sheffield Hallam University and Deputy Director of the University Alliance’s Teaching Excellence and with colleagues from OCSLD.
