Addressing the BAME Outcome Gap: the Importance of Research and Evaluation - Event 3

Date: 03rd December 2020

Location: Online (Microsoft Teams)

Please note this event is for Members only

NERUPI is running a series of online events for members this autumn on the BAME outcome gap.

The attainment gap between students from different backgrounds has now been accepted as a real and urgent issue for the HE sector. However, strategies for addressing this remain underdeveloped and solutions are not straightforward. To better understand the BAME outcome gap and to support constructive work towards real solutions, these events will focus on the broader cultural issues within the academy which are at the heart of the outcome disparity for some BAME students and look at some examples of best practice in the sector.

These will be half-day events and run online.

Please note all dates below are to be confirmed.

Event 1 - 14 October 2020

Jason Arday (Durham University) will provide the context with Berekhet Berakhy and Dorrie Chetty from University of Westminster adding insights on institutional change.

Event 2 - 11 November 2020

Nona McDuff OBE (Solent University) will talk on curriculum change followed by Dave Thomas ( University of Kent) on support services.

Event 3 - 3 December 2020

The third event is a panel discussion, an opportunity to debate the issues and start to identify constructive ways forward. Speakers from the previous events will be present at the panel discussion.

The full programme will be available shortly.
