I ran a workshop for staff, students and external visitors as part of Bath Spa’s extensive LGBT History Month programme. It was entitled ‘Towards an LGBT-Inclusive Curriculum’ and drew on the University of Birmingham’s project of this name. See the Universities page for more information
There were about 30 participants from a range of disciplines and equality and diversity roles as well as activists form the LGB and especially T communities. I covered the main aspects of the Birmingham project which included:
- the results of the survey of staff and students which asked them about their experiences and views of the content and delivery of the curriculum at Birmingham
- the Allies and Advocates schemes currently being developed
- the optional LGBTQ module being offered to all 1st year undergraduates
- making the training courses for postgraduates who teach more LGBTQ-inclusive
