Event Details

Introduction

The UCD Centre for the Study of Higher Education (CSHE) is an interdisciplinary research centre in the field of tertiary and higher education.

In conjunction with The National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, The Worldwide Universities Network and the Irish Universities Association present this seminar facilitated by Professor Sylvia Hurtado. It shall be followed by a student panel and workshop.

 

Overview

The  goal of this seminar to generate ideas around diverse learning environments and the implications of this in creating a campus climate for student success.   Irish HEIs are becoming more diverse in terms of socio-economic background, sexual identity, additional needs, different nationalities and an increasing number of international students.  Universities must now support students in developing habits of mind that will help them to be successful throughout their lives, to live in an intercultural world and achieve their full potential.  This requires universities to think about  and reflect on curricular and co-curricular process in new ways;  faculty identity, course content, teaching approaches, student identity and student support, all of which contribute to student success in a diverse learning environment.  


Aims

The seminar will focus on the following: 

-        Identify the different perspectives about student success – how it is viewed by students and universities.

-        Reflect on the needs of diverse undergraduate student cohorts and how they are currently supported. 

-        Consider the elements  / dimensions of campus climate that contribute to and inhibit success in a diverse learning environment. 

-        Develop strategies to promote campus climate that will enhance student success for all learners.  

 

The seminar/presentation will be followed by student panel where they will share their learned experiences.

The session will conclude with a workshop that will explore the following:

-        The role of the institution in embracing diversity

-        The integration of inclusive curriculum

-        The articulation of student identify and belonging
