Advancing Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT+) Inclusivity Across Higher Education Teaching and Learning Environments

Experiences of discrimination, marginalization and stigmatization negatively affect LGBT+ people’s access to and experience of a wide range of services including higher education. Student and academic communities need to understand the powerful influences of discrimination that many LGBT+ people can face and be confident, willing and equipped to challenge and mitigate factors that cause inequity and less favourable treatment.

This interactive workshop will:
• help you gain insight of discrimination and inequalities faced by LGBT+ people in learning environments
• introduce you to some tools and techniques to develop and deliver teaching and learning that promotes inclusion for LGBT+ people
• introduce you to exercises and resources to support developing your confidence to reflect LGBT+ people in curricula.

The interactive nature of this workshop will also offer you the opportunity to learn best practice from your peers and to share your ideas with them.
