About this event
NUI Galway’s Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CELT) has partnered with its Inclusive Learning project team to offer a virtual Symposium on Inclusive Learning on April 7th and 8th 2021.
As student populations become increasingly diverse, what can higher education institutions do to create a truly inclusive learning environment? How can we listen and respond to the needs and concerns of our students, while supporting staff to navigate an increasingly complex teaching and learning landscape?
This two-day symposium aims to raise awareness of issues of equality, diversity and inclusion in higher education, and will highlight the importance of centering the student voice. It will also showcase and share inclusive pedagogies, practices and approaches.
