This online seminar is the second in a three-part series that has been designed to support staff in investigating, understanding and addressing the awarding gaps in their courses, Departments or Colleges.

Participants hear from student co-researchers on the APP Participatory Action Research Project who investigated the reasons for the widest awarding gaps at Cambridge: those for Black British undergraduates and Disabled Students with declared mental health conditions. Through small group discussion participants will reflect on the questions that they might ask students and staff in their own courses, Departments or Colleges that would provide qualitative insights about the reasons for the awarding gaps, and suggestions for interventions that may help to narrow them.

  • Please note that we are using the term ‘awarding gap’ instead of ‘attainment gap’ to indicate the shift in focus across the Higher Education sector in conversation from student deficit and to institutional responsibility.

Please contact the co-facilitators Dr Ruth Walker (CCTL) or Gina Warren (E&D) if you have any questions about the seminars or related resources.

This course will be facilitated online via Zoom
