This PedRIO CIP Network/Institute of Education event is for Plymouth University staff and PhD/research students.
Keynote and workshop facilitated by Professor Penny Jane Burke, Director, Paulo Freire Institute-UK & Research in Inequalities, Policy and Education, School of Education, University of Roehampton,
This event will provide insights into inclusive
teaching in higher education from an internationally-renowned expert in the
field. After an introductory keynote, participants will have the opportunity in
workshops to consider what ‘inclusive education’ means, locate their own
thoughts and views within the context of the university and discuss and
explore how to interpret and apply the principles of inclusivity in their
practice. This connects with the programme of work on inclusive teaching and
learning at Plymouth University, see www.plymouth.ac.uk/your-university/teaching-and-learning/inclusivity
