Intercollegiate Forum: first-year undergraduate academic induction and development new [Places] 14:00 - 17:00 Student Services Centre, Exams Hall, Room AG03c

Students’ academic experiences during their first year of study provide strong foundations for their academic progress, outcomes and personal wellbeing. This Intercollegiate Forum is for College academic and professional staff and students who contribute to undergraduate students’ first-year academic induction and development, including (but not limited to) senior tutors and deputy senior tutors, directors of studies, librarians, academic skills tutors, heads of wellbeing and JCR officers.

The Forum will include a panel of invited Cambridge and external contributors and focussed discussion of key aspects of academic induction and development during the first year. We will consider ways of making positive differences within the distinctive environments of the Colleges to students’ experiences and outcomes, to share experiences and to reflect on opportunities for enhancement in 2023-24 and beyond.

The Forum is organised by the Cambridge Centre for Teaching & Learning as part of CCTL’s support for the collegiate University’s commitments to develop more inclusive educational environments and practices and to eliminate differentials in students’ assessment outcomes which cannot be explained through factors such as previous education and attainment (‘awarding gaps’).

Recently updated with a focus on only postgraduate students this workshop will look at ways of working effectively with students with specific learning difficulties (SpLD) Increasing numbers of all disabled students including those with SpLD means that it is less feasible to rely only on individual adjustments for all students. Consequently, this workshop focusses on practical changes based on inclusive teaching practice which enable the students to achieve their potential and have a fulfilling Cambridge experience. This workshop focusses on dissertations and PhDs, reading and research and laboratories and fieldwork.

Cambridge is one of the world’s leading universities, yet Black British students are statistically less likely to be awarded a First or Good Honours degree at Cambridge compared to their white peers. This disparity is known as the awarding gap. Institutional statistical analysis of admission data has shown that this disparity cannot be explained by factors such as previous education, socio-economic background or other intersecting variables including gender. The University has made a commitment to eliminate these inequitable degree outcomes and the last four years has seen considerable investment in research into the reasons for these troubling statistics.

This one-day forum is open to all Cambridge staff and students as an opportunity to explore, learn, and contribute towards a shared understanding about the impact of awarding gaps on Black undergraduate students. It is also a chance to reflect and critically engage on strategies and practices to address inequitable educational experiences at Cambridge, including the range of decolonisation initiatives already underway across the university. We welcome your views, ideas, and questions to help the University move forward in a mutually beneficial way.

The programme is being co-coordinated and co-designed by a team of student and staff researchers involved in the Access and Participation Plan’s Participatory Action Research (the APP PAR Project). The forum is supported by the Black Advisory Hub, the BME Campaign, and the Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning.
