The Advance HE Attainment Symposium - closing the gap: Student success for all is for HE staff and student representatives interested in the role of the curriculum in closing student attainment gaps. The symposium will examine the role of teaching staff in securing equitable outcomes for students; consider how teaching and learning activities fit within a ‘whole university’ strategic approach to attainment; explore how data can be shared, interrogated and used to better manage degree differentials; and assess the latest practical and evidence based approaches to closing attainment gaps and how these can be adapted in different disciplinary settings.
The aims of this symposium are:
- to provide an open and supportive environment within which to share and discuss contemporary practice-based interventions and initiatives in this priority area;
- and to devise subsequent support and guidance based on the research and understanding of different types of attainment gaps, and the range of practices addressed at equitable outcomes in higher education.
Presenters will be eligible for a discounted delegate rate of £180.
