Addressing the BAME Outcome Gap: the Importance of Research and Evaluation - Event 2

Date: 11th November 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. Scroll down for the booking form.

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.

Event 2 - 11 November 2020, 2:00-5:00 pm

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