This year we are focusing on teaching practices that enable all ARU students, whatever their background, to succeed and fulfil their potential. The TeachMeets will be held in Cambridge and Chelmsford.
The TeachMeet will start with lunch, followed by the keynote 'No one can do everything but everyone can do something – Institutional approaches to addressing the BAME attainment gap' by Dr Helen Barefoot, and micro and nano presentations.
Welcome – Sharon Waller
'No one can do everything but everyone can do something – Institutional approaches to addressing the BAME attainment gap' by Dr Helen Barefoot, University of Hertfordshire
Micro and nano presentations and discussions
Helen will share some of the projects and initiatives which have been carried out to attempt to address the attainment gap between White and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Students. She will discuss the benefits of the University of Hertfordshire’s engagement in an Office for Students funded collaborative project as well as sharing ideas on how to engage students in the work to reduce the gap.
Dr Helen Barefoot is the Deputy Director of the Learning and Teaching Innovation Centre at the University of Hertfordshire where she leads continuing professional development (CPD) for academic staff. As Chair of the BAME student success working group, and with a specific interest in reducing the attainment gap between BAME students, Helen works to improve policies, processes and teaching practices.
