What are the Stories of Suc​​cess? 

​​Our ‘Stories of Success’ are good practice case studies which have been collated as part of a collaborative project worked on by UEL colleagues from our Race Equality team, the Centre for Student Success and the Centre of Excellence in Learning and Teaching. The project was co-ordinated by our Community Psychology student intern, Jacqueline Owusu, during 2018/19 academic year. ​ The following video provides an overview of the case studies and below follows the individual​ video case studies. 

What was the aim of the project and what next?

The case studies were created through interviews with staff and students with questions that aimed to highlight inclusive teaching and learning practice, specific interventions or practices and the positive effects of these on student’s learning. 

The case studies also aimed to explore what staff and students understood by terms such as inclusion and decolonising the curriculum.

Jacqueline Owusu, Psychology student / EDI intern talks about inclusivity and decolonising the curriculum from a student perspective. Jacqueline led on this project and interviewing for the case studies below as well as other written case studies available below. 

Going forward these case studies will contribute to agreeing a university approach.
