The British Educational Research Association (BERA) has published a new blog post highlighting the work of academics from Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) who are leading a project to help trainee teachers gain confidence in teaching pupils from diverse backgrounds by developing teaching resources about BAME communities.
The cross-departmental project, takes in work from three academics across different parts of the university; Dr Sheine Peart, programme leader for the Doctor of Education, Dr Hadiza Kere Abdulrahman, senior lecturer in inclusive education, and Dr Clare Lawrence, senior lecturer in teacher development.
Speaking following the BERA coverage Dr Lawrence discussed the projects background:
“This project builds on the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion work already being carried out in our secondary PGCE programme, which is promoted by Zoe Nye and Lyndsay Muir. This kind of collaborative work is very exciting, and I think that we have all enjoyed being involved.”
