HERDSA Heroes in Higher Education Awards
Closing date 5pm AEST on 14th May 2021

HERDSA is pleased to announce they will be giving 5 new awards this year called HERDSA Heroes in Higher Education. There are five awards of $500 each.

These awards recognise academic generosity in challenging times, with an opportunity to show gratitude by recognising the generosity of a colleague or team of colleagues, who have supported you or others in an unexpected/exceptional way during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This academic generosity may be in the areas of research, teaching, service, or academic development. The generosity received may be something “tangible” (e.g., outstanding support with shifting to online teaching and learning), or more “intangible” (e.g., helping you to feel a sense of belonging and connectedness in a time of isolation). Close of submission by
5pm on 14th May 2021

Mini-case studies of socially-just pedagogic practices in HE, including diversity, equity, inclusion, indigenisation, decolonisation

Dear Colleagues

We are seeking your help in collecting mini-case studies (250-300 words) of socially-just learning and teaching practices at module, programme, and institutional levels, particularly those that involve student-staff partnerships from anywhere in the world. We are adopting a broad definition of ‘socially-just pedagogies’ which may involve creating ‘places of possibility’ (Osman & Hornsby 2018) through a wide range of topics that explore social inclusion and diverse knowledges (Soudien 2015), including for example: diversity, inclusion, equity, anti-racism, indigenising and decolonising the curriculum, and mental health and well-being. We are also interested in mini-case studies of interesting ways you have engaged staff and students with these issues.

Some examples are available on our website to illustrate the kind of practices and style of the case studies in which we are interested (https://mickhealey.co.uk/devtest/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/Socially-jus...).

The collection will be added to the online resources that we maintain on our website (https://mickhealey.co.uk/resources). They will complement the other sets of mini case studies we have developed on topics, such as Linking teaching and research and engaging students in research and inquiry; Students as partners and change agents; and Final year projects & dissertations. Colleagues appear to find these resources useful:

“Many thanks for your ongoing work and service to the higher education community, your bibliographies and case studies are a wonderful reference for all of us. All the work behind the scenes is very much appreciated.” Virna Rossi, Ravensbourne University London

Please send your mini case studies to Dr Ruth Healey at r.healey@chester.ac.uk and pass on this invitation to others that you think may have interesting socially-just pedagogic practices to share.
