As part of the HEA Scotland embedding equality and diversity in the curriculum (EEDC) strategic enhancement project, Abertay University focused on developing an infrastructure for the embedding of race equality and the internationalising of their curriculum. They developed a bespoke model focused on four pillars: capacity, capability, competence and confidence. Lying on a foundation of CPD – comprising online training, workshops, online resources, mentorship and further professional development opportunities – these four pillars aim to support the development of excellence in EEDC. Abertay used their work on the SEP within the curriculum section of their application for Equality Challenge Unit’s Race Equality Charter Mark, feedback following the award of which highlighted this work as a real strength of their submission.
Further information about Abertay’s work can be found in the below video (the slides for which are also downloadable on the right) and their accompanying case study.
