Promoting a Culture of Belonging in Further and Higher Education

Join Human Development Scotland for a session exploring the concept and contemporary relevance of a culture of belonging in further and higher education.

Promoting a Culture of Belonging in Further and Higher Education

About Promoting a Culture of Belonging in Further and Higher Education

The workshop aims to uncover new understandings on the theme of belonging by:

• Examining current thinking around how ‘a culture of belonging’ contributes to student learning, retention and resilience

• Exchanging experiences of alienation and belonging in educational situations

• Investigating how current polarising political, social, economic and ecological tensions mitigate against free speech and are detrimental to a culture of belonging

• Proposing practical strategies to promote an inclusive culture of belonging for everyone.

Where? Our Glasgow city centre offices, Victoria Chambers, 142 West Nile Street, Glasgow G1 2RQ

Who should attend? Students, academics, support staff, administrators and anyone interested in promoting innovative models of human communication in our adult learning institutions.
