Mind the gap online seminar 1: what does the data tell you about your awarding gaps?
Prerequisites

Tue 12 Jan 2021
POSTPONED

Description


This online seminar is the first 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.

The workshop activities will be led by Dr Laura Hall (Business Information Team).

Participants will be provided with guidance on accessing and interpreting the statistical data available on Tableau, which will help you identify which student groups are less likely to be awarded Firsts or Good Honours degrees than their peers. Structured activities will help individuals see the awarding gaps in their local institutional contexts across the last 5 years, with opportunities for Q&A. Small group discussion will allow participants to compare findings and begin reflections on the reasons for these gaps.

  • 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

Target audience
  • University staff
  • College and Non-University Teaching Institutions
