Norah Campbell
01:01:32
Yes: really want to hear more about how to represent students’ lives more in the curriculum.
Sadhbh Byrne
01:02:35
Thanks Amirah! I read about this medical illustrator who is creating illustrations for different medical issues represented on Black skin which is a good example of how this could be incorporated as you mentioned: https://healthcity.bmc.org/policy-and-industry/creator-viral-black-fetus-medical-illustration-blends-art-and-activism

I also really liked this diagram demonstrating Bronfenbrenner's ecological systems model for Black youth: https://twitter.com/clinpsych_ind/status/1460165178247503872/photo/1
Aminul
01:07:10
You awesome folks at Trinity must be doing something right - if Fadilah and Amirah are anything to go by! Such insight, and also important ideas - articulate, challenging, honest, practical, thought-provoking!
Aminul
01:08:19
Make students feel valued and engaged. Not just mere tick box tokenism, but really get them involved and make the curriculum also reflect who they are!
Siobán O'Brien Green
01:08:26
Thank you so much Fadilah- brilliant insights
Caroline
01:08:52
Thank you Fadilah, a lot to consider
Anoara Mughal
01:09:04
Thank you Fadilah! Lots to think about.
Lorraine Leeson
01:10:46
That was so insightful, Fadilah and Amirah. Thank you for sharing these considerations - great suggestions here for working forward on. Looking forward to more conversations with you (and the broader Trinity community).
Sham
01:12:06
There are a lot of work being done in educational settings when it comes to diversity. However, they do not often reflect the backgrounds of students from South Asian community, including British Bengalis, who are often left behind. I am very grateful to Aminul for highlighting some of the issues affecting the students of British Bengali communities.
Joanne Banks

Universal Design for Learning?

Caroline
01:13:07
Apologies I have to leave to get ready for another meeting. Thank you so much for this seminar on a very important topic. We need to have a lot more of these conversations to raise awareness of the issues faced by many students.
Sham
01:14:20
Spot on, Aminul.
Anoara Mughal
01:14:54
Absolutely this Aminul!
Aidan Seery
01:15:35
Apologies, will have to leave for next meeting. Many, many thanks to all the contributors and organisers.
Martin Worthington

Thank you all - have to go,
Lorraine Downey
01:16:03
Culturally responsive and sustaining pedagogies. Zaretta Hammond’s book is a great resource.
Sham
01:16:16
Aminul, how much of the student's confidence do you think is affected by the lack of representation?
Catherine Elliott O'Dare
01:16:20
We need to recognise age diversity too- life long learning and 'second chance' education are vital for so many.
Aminul
01:18:05
Sham - absolutely. If what they read, if what they discuss, if their lecturers, do not reflect them and does not 'sepak' to them, then there is a crisi of representation - this then affects both their visibility, voice and confidence.
Jane Magan
01:18:33
Thank you so much Aminul, Amirah and Fadilah for sharing your work, thoughts and experience, really wonderful conversation. Thanks to all who organised, looking forward to the next.
