Before the outbreak of COVID-19 in the UK, the 2020 conference was focused on the idea of inclusive practice and how this might affect our teaching as foundation year practitioners.  In the light of the most radical shifts in teaching practices for more than a generation, what does inclusive practice mean now?  In the contributions below, colleagues consider what teaching practices might look like next year and how we can support students as they transition in to higher education.   

We invite colleagues to join us for a round-table discussion, focused on the resources below, that will be taking place on Monday 13th July, 11:00-12:30.  To join the conversation, colleagues must first join the Annual Conference Teams site, which you can do by signing up here:

Once you are a member of the Teams site, you can join the conversation taking place in the Inclusive Teaching and Transition channel.
