Culturally Sensitive Curricula Scales: Book Launch

Date: 01st October 2024

Location: ONLINE 2.00. - 3.30

This edited book outlines the conceptualization, development, and use of a novel set of Culturally Sensitive Curricula Scales (CSCS) as an instrument for students to rate the cultural sensitivity of their curriculum, as well as a self-reflection tool for educators to use in order to make curriculum changes. The book provides insights from the use of the tools collectively and individually in a range of higher education institutions across the UK, to inform curriculum revision nationally and internationally.

“The CSCS offers a great starting point to create more culturally sensitive curricula. It invites teaching staff to start the conversation with students, listening to their perspectives. In addition, the scales can also be applied to a broader context of inclusive education. The examples presented throughout the chapters inspired me to start changing the curriculum in a more culturally sensitive way.” (Mijke Hartendorp, Saxion University of Applied Sciences, the Netherlands)

“Dave S.P. Thomas and Kathleen M. Quinlan set an intention and take readers on a journey to develop more equitable and culturally informed curricula. This book is a must-read for anyone committed to educational equality and creating inclusive learning environments.” (Khalilah R. Johnson, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA)
