The rising awareness of global issues such as climate change, the debates arising from the Black Lives Matter movement and the impact of socio-economic inequalities so starkly revealed by the Covid-19 pandemic have ignited debates about equity, culture and curriculum in education.
Online learning, teaching and student support has changed across the system, from primary to post-graduate with students facing particular pressures when making critical choices about secondary school, GCSE options, and further and higher education.
Finally, policy changes in Further and Higher Education could impact on the range of courses on offer and the way they are funded. We are living in a time of extraordinary change, but it is unclear whether this will result in greater equity in education or increased inequalities.
Join us to discuss the issues, share your work and explore ways to capture its impact.
Our confirmed speakers so far include:
- Professor Nicola Ingram, Manchester Metropolitan University
- Chris Millward, Director for Access and Participation, Office for Students
- Professor Marie-Pierre Moreau, Anglia Ruskin University
- Dr Jon Rainford, the Open University
- Dave Thomas, University of Kent
