Diversity vs. Color-Blindness: Experiences, Relevance, and a Way Forward (EN)

How diverse are the staff, students, and curricula at Utrecht University’s humanities and science faculties, and why is this relevant? This panel discussion explores the experiences and forms of diversity at this department, examines its relevance for the staff and students, as well as for the city and even broader audiences. We will have a structured discussion with you on how to work on more diverse and inclusive academic performances.

Diversity in teaching: the Toolbox Diversity in Education can help you! (EN)

In this workshop we will introduce the Toolbox Diversity in Education app (developed by Cultural Anthropology) and participants will experience the tool first-hand. The Toolbox provides exercises that teachers can assign for students. The exercises focus on awareness of and reflection on one’s own identity and positionality as student/researcher/teacher, possible biases in literature, and dialogues in the classroom.

Sharing good practices for increasing diversity and inclusion as design patterns (EN)

By: Christian Köppe & Anne Bartilla (Faculty of Science)
Location: Westerdijkkamer

In this workshop we will first introduce a collection of design patterns initially intended for increasing gender diversity in Computer Science Education, followed by an interactive exploration on how these patterns can be applied for other diversity and inclusion aspects too. Finally, we look at how patterns in general can offer a pragmatic and valuable approach for sharing good practices.

All Inclusive - discuss your (un)conscious biases at work (EN & NL)

By: Caspar de Bok (Faculty of Law, Economics and Government)

THREE PITCHES ON INCLUSIVE INITIATIVES AND (STUDENT)EXPERIENCES (EN)

Location: Senaatszaal

1. Refugees in Science - Ali Aljasem (HUM)

In this pitch, Ali will convince you of the need to form a task force to advise on refugees' admissions into Dutch universities. He has gone through the hard-to-meet procedures that people form war zones are required to go through, and would like to share his experiences with you.

2. A biomedical approach to diversity - Ouafa Dahri (UMCU)

One way to create awareness about unconscious bias among biomedical students is by focusing on their field of interest. We developed a course focusing on biomedical mechanisms behind implicit bias such as those of a neurological and physiological nature. The course touches on how bias influences research choices resulting in exclusion of entire groups in human population.

3. Diversity from a student's perspective - Donya Yassine & Jelte Vegter (students SBS)

As two students who became more involved into the subjects of (ethnic) diversity and inclusion, both on academic and social level, Donya and Jelte want to give a short pitch to show the influence students can have and to motivate other students to join them in making diversity possible.

You can't be what you can't see: rolmodellen en diversiteit (NL)

Door: Conny Seeleman & Maaike Kok (UMC Utrecht)

Rolmodellen zijn belangrijk voor het ontwikkelen van een (professionele) identiteit. In deze workshop gaan we met elkaar in gesprek gaan over het begrip rolmodel en over het begrip rolmodel in de context van diversiteit. Wat kan een rolmodel voor iemand betekenen? Is het belangrijk dat we ‘zichtbaar’ diverse rolmodellen hebben? En kan een opleiding sturen in diversiteit van haar rolmodellen?

Deelnemers zijn docenten die post-academisch onderwijs (willen) begeleiden of geïnteresseerd zijn in LifeLongLearning.

Students with dyslexia in higher education (EN)

By: Beatriz Arlanzón (University College Roosevelt)
Location: Opzoomerkamer

One may think that by the time students with dyslexia enrol at a university they have developed all the study strategies they need to finish their studies with success. Is this the case? How can we as teachers better support our students with dyslexia?

An arts-based approach to diversity (EN)

By: Elena Valbusa (Utrecht University InclUUsion) & Noortje van Amsterdam (Faculty of Law, Economics and Government)

DRIE PITCHES OVER INCLUSIEVE UU-INITIATIEVEN (NL)

Locatie: Senaatszaal

1. Instroom en selectie - Wieke Eefting

Kijk eens om je heen: welke studenten zitten bij of met jou in de collegebanken? Komen ze uit alle windstreken of is het een homogene groep? Welk imago heeft je opleiding? Met dit project willen we samen met de opleidingen concrete stappen zetten om alle studenten, ongeacht hun achtergrond, zich welkom te laten voelen. Deze pitch zet je aan het denken en geeft de eerste handvatten om vandaag nog aan de slag te gaan.

2. Platform onbeperkt studeren - Soete Meertens
