Let's talk about Inclusive Curriculum & Teaching

Thursday 28 October 2021
14.30-16.30 + Drinks Reception until 17.30
Schouwburgstraat 2
2511 VA The Hague

We would like to invite you to our FGGA Symposium: Let’s talk about Inclusive Curriculum & Teaching on 28 October.

The creation of an inclusive curriculum and inclusive teaching is becoming an increasingly important theme to talk about within the educational environment. We as FGGA are extremely proud to announce our upcoming faculty symposium: ‘Let’s talk about Inclusive Curriculum & Teaching’! As the first faculty of Leiden University to take forward this discussion, we are keen to bring people together to share our thoughts on how to create an inclusive curriculum and an inclusive way of teaching. Are you keen to explore what is exactly meant when you hear Inclusive Curriculum & Teaching? Are you curious about what you can do as a teacher or supported staff member to contribute to Inclusive Curriculum & Teaching? Or what challenges or difficulties might go along with the development of an Inclusive Curriculum and how can we face them together?

Please register below and secure your place at the symposium!

By hosting this symposium, we will create an open and inspiring environment for all staff members, both supported staff ánd academic staff, during which we can talk with each other about this topic. The event will include several presentations (from internal and external speakers) that offer room for different perspectives on the development of an inclusive curriculum and inclusive teaching. But equally important is how this event will bring all of us more clarity about the theme: Inclusive Curriculum & Teaching.

This symposium will both give you a quick deep dive into the broad concept of Inclusive Curriculum as it introduces hands-on guidelines that can be helpful for teachers interested in making their classrooms more inclusive. We invite everyone to easily start the conversation about this topic and get inspired.
