Diversity in Higher Education

We've moved permanently!

The Higher Education Training and Development Unit which was part of the University Teaching and Learning Portfolio has been reconfigured and effective January 1, 2018, its staff has been integrated in the School of Education in the Cluster of Education and Development Studies.

The aim of this module is to enable higher education practitioners to develop a critical understanding of the role of diversity in contemporary higher education endeavours, as well as develop an appreciation for the scholarship of diversity in higher education. Participants will be challenged to reflect on their own and others’ conceptions of diversity, how these conceptions influence processes in higher education, how these processes may be researched, and how a proactively diverse higher education environment can enhance the functioning and profile of higher education institutions.

The module will include such topics as:

The scholarship of diversity in higher education

  • Diversity and identity in higher education (with a focus on power differentials in relation to topics of race, gender, socio-economic status, culture, disability, language, sexual orientation, age, religion, and level of educational attainment)
  • The social construction of diversity
  • Diversity, equity and equality in the various sectors of higher education
