Submit your contributions

The University is developing an online collection of pieces on Promoting Racial Justice in Teaching and Learning.

We want to provide a platform for sharing experiences, insights and best practice, to promote discussion and encourage action by bringing together pieces across our community on race (in)equality in teaching and learning.

We are asking students to contribute their ideas on the following themes:

  • What is being done/needs to be done to promote race equality in teaching and learning?
  • What is being done/needs to be done to decolonise teaching methods/curricula?
  • How are/could/should students be involved in attempts to promote race equality in teaching and learning?
  • What impacts have initiatives to diversify/decolonise the curriculum had so far?
  • Your opinion on the importance of this or what the University of Reading should do to progress.

We are keen for this collection to reflect the diversity of experiences, perspectives and opinions of our teaching and learning community. We, therefore, welcome contributions from all colleagues AND students. We are not prescribing a format or style but invite contributions in a range of forms. These might range from traditional forms of writing (e.g. research reports/case studies/literature reviews) to more personal or creative pieces (opinion pieces, biographical writing, reflective pieces, creative non-fiction, poetry, photography, etc.).

This could be an individual or group submission.

Once agreed by the panel, your work will be published and used to help the university move forward.

You should include:

  • The title of the piece
  • The name and email address of the author(s)
  • Your school
  • A reference list (where relevant).

For any queries or to send your submission, please email Eileen Hyder (e.m.hyder@reading.ac.uk) by 1st March 2021.
