teaching and learning across a range of their work To explore how to use Curriculum Review and Re-design as an opportunity to make teaching and learning more inclusive of all students, with the aim of: identifying and removing existing unnecessary barriers to learning making better use of diverse experiences and perspectives of students and staff Workshop Learning Outcomes By the end of this workshop you will be better able to: Define what inclusive curriculum design means in your

discipline Identify and remove existing unnecessary barriers to learning Plan for inclusive teaching & learning in a variety of settings Make better use of diverse experiences and perspectives of students and staff Evaluate current practice in your department in terms of inclusivity Defining inclusive curriculum design Our students benefit in an

environment where they feel included, and where they are taught in ways that recognise and support their needs as individuals, and as part of a learning community. Plymouth Universitys Guide on Inclusive Learning & Teaching Defining inclusive curriculum design We will foster an inclusive and diverse community where different backgrounds and cultures in staff and students are cherished and celebrated, and their different cultural experiences and identities are embraced in order to better prepare all students for an increasingly

diverse and complex future work environment. We will foster a culture that understands and embodies the values of diversity and inclusivity, ensuring this is reflected in campus life, in the curriculum, and in the application of knowledge to real-life problems in a global context. - Imperial College, Learning and Teaching Strategy, June 2017 www.imperial.ac.uk/media/imperial-college/about/leadership-and-st rategy/vp-education/public/LearningTeachingStrategy.pdf Imperial Graduate Attributes a guide for cross-College curriculum design Our aim for our graduates is that they will: Demonstrate deep conceptual understanding of their chosen

Evaluation Reviewing existing curricula Use the Curriculum Review Inclusivity Checklist to evaluate how inclusive your existing curriculum is Valuing student diversity: Some Imperial student perspectives the reason I came to Imperial is because it locates in Europe, and Europe

is the leading area in environmental protection. So at first I only took for granted for some... for some things is over in China, and now I came here I can see something is totally different from what I thinkI can feel how deeply the European people care about the climate change. That is totally different from what Chinese people think, I think. (Chinese student) Its being able to look at issues or whatevers in front of you from a different perspective. Specifically what youre mentioning about using the multinational lecture theatre, I would say from my perspective that doesnt exist. Its very much: This is just the thing. You know, its not

how would different people look at this problem? It seems to be taught quite linearly. (British student) Designing inclusive curricula In your discipline specific groups discuss and begin mapping a more inclusive curriculum Make use of: Framework Checklist Case studies on coloured hand outs Your experience
