This online workshop is the second in a three-part series that has been designed to support staff in investigating, understanding and addressing the awarding gaps in their courses, Departments or Colleges.

Participants will hear from student researchers who have been working with CCTL to investigate the reasons for the widest awarding gaps at Cambridge: those for Black British undergraduates and Disabled Students with declared mental health conditions. In small group sessions, participants will reflect on the questions that they might ask students and staff in their own courses, Departments or

Colleges that would provide qualitative insights about the reasons for the awarding gaps, and suggestions for interventions that may help to narrow them.

Please contact Dr Ruth Walker (CCTL) or Gina Warren (E&D) if you have any questions about the seminars or related resources.

Please note that we are using the term ‘awarding gap’ instead of ‘attainment gap’ to indicate the shift in focus across the Higher Education sector in conversation from student deficit and to institutional responsibility.

This session will be held via Teams
