Diversity in Teaching Research Symposium
Diversifying initial teacher education, and the teaching profession, in Ireland and internationally has been of research and policy significance for some time, and since 2017 in Ireland has been operationalised in practice through the projects funded under the Higher Education Authority Programme for Access to Higher Education (PATH) (Strand 1: Equity of Access to Initial Teacher Education). On Thursday, November 14th 2019, the School of Education at NUI Galway hosted a Research Symposium on the topic of Diversity in Teaching. Professor Anne Scott, Vice President for Diversity and Equality at NUI Galway opened proceedings, and Professor Liz Thomas (Director and Chair, Widening Participation Research Centre, Edge Hill University, England) provided the keynote address. The symposium main proceedings consisted of a number of parallel sessions and a panel discussion. The main aim was to provide a forum for the sharing of research findings from the projects funded under PATH1.
