Universities are complex structures. Like beehives, they require a collective understanding of individuals and their identities to function effectively. We sometimes talk about our ‘student body’ or ‘staff body’, with the underlying assumption that people’s needs are all the same, but it is paramount that we take into account the different identities of our students and staff for effective learning and teaching. With this in mind, we welcome submissions that are related to identities in the broadest sense, of both students and staff, and their impact on learning and teaching (see below for more details).
We are delighted to confirm our keynote speaker:
We also have three invited experts discussing how to address educational inequalities relating to racial identities in our Chair’s Symposium, led by Dr Louise Taylor Bunce including:
Identities, or how we see ourselves and others, influence our attitudes, values, beliefs, and behaviours. Individual differences based on our identities, as well as intersections of those identities, are fundamental to understanding the success, or not, of the educational process.
Proposals could cover a variety of topics relating to different elements of student and staff identities, including, but not limited to:
Other aspects of identity include those relating to protected characteristics, and their intersections, such as: race/ethnicity, gender, age, disability, sexuality, religion, and life experiences such as being a carer or a parent, mature student, care leaver etc.
