Seeking: short examples of socially-just learning & teaching practices

Ruth and Mick Healey, well known educationalists, are seeking "mini-case studies (250-300 words) of socially-just learning and teaching practices at module, programme, and institutional levels, particularly those that involve student-staff partnerships, from anywhere in the world. We are adopting a broad definition of ‘socially-just pedagogies’ which may involve creating ‘places of possibility’ (Osman & Hornsby 2018) through a wide range of topics that explore social inclusion and diverse knowledges (Soudien 2015), including for example: diversity, inclusion, equity, anti-racism, indigenising or de-colonising the curriculum, and mental health and well-being. We are also interested in mini-case studies of interesting ways you have engaged staff and students with these issues." 

They will add these to the very useful Resources area of their website, where they already maintain a number of bibliographies about aspects of learning in higher education 

They collect examples from all over the world and I'm sure there are a lot of examples which involve librarians that could be added! Send your mini case studies (or any questions) to Dr Ruth Healey at
