Festival of Learning and Teaching 2022: Inclusive Curricula and Learning Environments

Date: Friday 17th June 2022

St Mary's Festival of Learning and Teaching is our flagship annual learning and teaching event.

The Festival brings together colleagues from St Mary's, our collaborative partners and other universities to explore our teaching practices around key themes in higher education.

The theme of the 2022 Festival is Inclusive Curricula and Learning Environments. Inclusiveness has arguably never been more important to our students and society; however, higher education students from underrepresented groups often feel less at home at university and fare significantly worse on student experience and outcome indicators such as mental health and wellbeing, retention and degree outcomes.

St Mary’s, as a small university with an inclusive ethos in one of the most diverse cities in the world, is well placed to lead inclusion in higher education. The Festival provides a forum to explore the many dimensions of inclusive learning and teaching, and share the diverse ways in which we foster inclusion in our classrooms, our curricula and the wider student experience.
