University Pioneers

Schools, student and study associations

One of UP-Community’s goals is to create awareness about the ins and outs of first-generation students. Are you interested in advice on diversity, inclusion and equality in your association or school? Chahida has extensive experience in inclusive education and teaching. During a counselling session, it is possible to share your own personal experiences and doubts and discuss different approaches together.

Inclusive teaching is an ongoing process that will not happen overnight, but rather is a cycle that involves reflection. This workshop will give teachers ideas and tools to start or continue making teaching more inclusive.

Why focus on diversity and inclusion?

  • Promote equality – equal opportunities, treat everyone as equally valuable people
  • Recognise the importance of diversity – need for role models
  • Be inclusive – avoid micro-aggressions (“death by a thousand papercuts”)

This workshop is suitable for all secondary school teachers. It does not matter whether you are a maths teacher or a social studies teacher. After all, inclusive teaching is cross-curricular. In this workshop, you and your colleagues will work in a safe setting with cases from your own practice, which you will analyse with the help of a reflection tool in order to come to an appropriate action. This tool gives teachers tools to act in sensitive classroom situations related to D&I. In this process, you will be supported by the two teachers hosting the workshop.
