Teaching Matters is the University of Edinburgh’s website for debate about learning and teaching, for sharing ideas and approaches to teaching, and for showcasing our successes, including academic colleagues who are leading the way in delivering brilliant teaching.
Every month we take a theme and explore it through a video highlighting one of our outstanding teachers, and a number of blog contributions over the month. We also add news items as they come in and run an events listing page.
The focus for this month is diversity and inclusion in learning and teaching. We have published a number of posts on this topic in previous months, including:
- Fair’s Fair: embedding equality and diversity into the curriculum by Imogen Wilson
- Enhancing teaching with resource lists by Angela Laurins
- Diversifying the medical curriculum using open educational resources by Jo Spiller
- Here, queer, but not for long: What’s happening to our LGBT+ student population? by Hazel Marzetti
Throughout December, Teaching Matters will publish more posts on this topic written by staff and students from across the University.
We hope that you enjoy this edition of Teaching Matters and encourage you to get involved. Future Teaching Matters themes will include:
- Employability – January 2017
- Teaching beyond the programme – February 2017
- Peer teaching – March 2017
If you have an idea or story related to these themes and you’d like to contribute a blog post, video, or other media let us know.
Let us have your news, tell us when you are organising events on learning and teaching we can publicise, sign up to receive notifications when new blogs are published, and send in your own blogs and comments on any aspect of teaching and learning.
