Responsive pedagogy events
The Business School is organising two events which are open to other teaching staff across the University. Dr rashné limki (she/her), Lecturer in Work and Organisation Studies and Equality and Diversity Director, University of Edinburgh Business School, writes:
The ongoing political situations, with regards to the Covid-19 pandemic and the resurgence of mass action against anti-back violence, have indicated without a doubt how social inequality and oppression affect the ways in which we are allowed to inhabit our worlds. Many of our students are directly impacted by these situations. Yet, regardless of personal impact, students confront this reality in their work and lives, at University and beyond.
Responsive pedagogy: Addressing liven experiences of inequality, 30 June 2020, 3.30-5pm
This panel is an opportunity to learn through the lived experiences of our students. How we might appreciate the relevance of inequality to our students’ experiences? How we might treat our institution as a site for supporting students through their own experiences of inequality? How might we re-think our own practices and activities in order to improve our support to students as they grapple with these experiences?
Speakers: Laura Cattell, Neil Speirs and students (Widening Participation Team); Mohini Gray (Edinburgh Diversity and Inclusion Network); Victoria Buchanan (Student Disability Services)

Responsive pedagogy in times of crisis: Race.Ed launch event, 8 July 2020, 3-5pm
The purpose of this event is to help us think collectively and creatively about how experiences of inequality and oppression (as structured through notions of vulnerability, intersectionality, decoloniality) should impact/be integrated into our pedagogy. How do we teach in ways that support students in grappling with their own experiences of inequality and oppression? And how can we prepare them to better understand and address the operations of inequality and oppression?
Speakers: Katucha Bento, Rama Dieng, Carol Dixon, Agomoni Ganguli-Mitra, Radhika Govinda, Nasar Meer, Kaveri Qureshi and Shaira Vadasaria
