LCC staff can learn more about ensuring safety, equity and inclusion in our new ways of working in a new session on Inclusive Remote Teaching with Lucy Panesar and Emily Salines on Thursday 16 April 11-12.30 or watch a recorded version via Collaborate playback.
The safety, equity and inclusion of students and staff is at the forefront of our minds right now, as we adapt our ways of living, working and studying in the current circumstances. And whilst a number of us are fortunate enough to continue working and studying at home, in good health and with the opportunity and resources to engage remotely, there are students and staff in less privileged positions and for whom existing disadvantage is increasing.
It is the University’s Public Sector Equality Duty to ‘remove or minimise disadvantages suffered by people due to their protected characteristics’, and whilst we have been making great progress at LCC in reducing disadvantage for students with disabilities and from certain ethnic groups, this new situation calls for new types of effort. Other posts to this Hub offer great guidance on creating digitally equitable environments for students, promoting methods relying on the lowest levels of immediacy and bandwidth.
