It’s a cold and frosty start to the new academic term but it’s always lovely to meet students again. This term I’m down as the convenor and tutor for an undergraduate unit called Education, Schooling & Diversity for the BSc Childhood Studies, and I’m literally about to leave the office for the first tutorial. If I was a student again this is the kind of unit I would want to study – 24 lectures, delivered by 10 member of staffs, group projects, visits to Bristol’s learning centres, and a critical assignment pulling it all together in the end. Given that this is a first year unit I suspect that students will be new to special and inclusive educational theory, and I’m looking forward to getting stuck into teaching over the coming weeks.
