Attainment differentials between students of colour and white students are being exposed and examined across the higher education sector. Members of the art and design higher education community are at different points in relation to recognising and addressing this problem. Dr Gurnam Singh (2018) refers to ‘Awarding Gaps’ to highlight the institutional responsibilities associated with attainment differentials.
This one day symposium will bring together educators and students who are leading work in this area.
This event is for tutors and leaders in art and design who want to understand (and address) the issues at stake. Over the course of the day there will be practical workshops and keynotes that will share work on decolonising the art school curriculum, redesigning assessment approaches, addressing implicit bias and combating stereotype threat.
