Module receives Inclusive Practice Marks
A module on our Secondary Mathematics Education BA(Hons) with QTS course has received two marks for inclusive practice.
The Inclusive Practice Marks recognise and celebrate demonstrable development and enhancement of module curricula to make both content and delivery methods more inclusive to all students and are part of the University’s broader work on inclusive practice.
The Fundamental, Historical and Cultural Roots of Mathematics has received both the Inclusive Practice Mark for Decolonising and the Inclusive Practice Mark for Diversifying.
In the module students study and celebrate the diverse historical and cultural development of Maths, including their own personal experience. The course includes sessions on Chinese, Indian, Greek, Babylonian and Egyptian maths – and involves activities such as making a Chinese abacus, using hieroglyphs for multiplication and learning to count in different languages.
The feedback commended the modules approach for its open and supportive learning environment, which was described as “a major achievement and sets apart this module as exemplar in its delivery approaches”.
Senior lecturer in the School of Education said: “The course team are very proud of receiving the Inclusive Practice Marks.
“The process was a testament everyone involved in achieving the mark but also to the current and former students who have studied and shaped the module – it celebrates their diversity and ensures that they remain at the heart of everything we do.”
