Internship Scheme 2021
Working in partnership with students to embed inclusive teaching practices at Oxford
Six graduate interns participated in our Student Experience Internship Scheme 2021 for 10 weeks from July to September.
The goal for the Internship Scheme 2021 was to further the University’s equality objectives of reducing gaps in access, participation and attainment among students.
While barriers to the University's equality objectives are multiple and complex, students have identified both Oxford’s curricula and its wider culture of teaching and learning as key areas of focus.
Interns partnered with academics, educational developers, and other key stakeholders on two inclusion related projects:
- Project 1: Race and the curriculum
- Project 2: Student transition to Oxford
Both projects aimed to further the University’s education-related commitments in its strategic plan to:
- Attract and admit students from a wider range of backgrounds (Commitment 1).
- Offer an excellent academic experience to all students and equip them to excel in whatever they choose to do (Commitment 2).
- Refresh the University’s rich academic environment (Commitment 3).
The projects were designed to build on the existing inclusive teaching support developed by the Centre for Teaching and Learning, including the Flexible and Inclusive Teaching (FIT) materials and the Introduction to inclusive teaching at Oxford (SSO required) online course.
The Centre for Teaching and Learning's Student Experience Internship Scheme 2021 was supported generously by the University’s Diversity Fund.
