Abstract:

This roundtable discussion will explore the extent to which feedback and assessment is taken into consideration when developing teaching and learning around diversity in the curriculum. Using data gathered as part of the Athena SWAN charter process, the session will review the impact of gender and other protected characteristics on attainment in undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and what support can and should be put in place for students.  Panellists will consider this from the perspectives of curriculum design, assessment and wider policy change.
