Massification is a feature of many universities around the world today. More students means greater access, greater diversity, and more opportunities for creating success.
But how we understand success and share the responsibility for turning access into success for more students needs careful attention and thought. This seminar looks at how we might use practical, powerful social theory to think differently about teaching, learning and student success.
There will be a chance to ask questions at the end of the seminar presentation via Zoom
