SALT would like to welcome you to our CPD Byte. We have created a Canvas course called CPD Inclusive Practices which is designed to help all teaching and support staff to develop a more inclusive approach to their role. The course contains lots of information about your obligations in terms of the law and Swansea University’s policies regarding provision for the full range of protected characteristics.
The course is under development and therefore we would welcome your ideas and opinions. There is a Discussions section where members of staff are encouraged to post valuable, up-to-date information about Inclusive Practice in their particular discipline. We will also be supplementing the online content with workshops.
I am hoping that the course content itself, and the need to be better at what we do, will be enough motivation to take part in the CPD Inclusive Practices course, but I anticipate that badges embed an additional incentive to learn.
The idea is that staff can experience the instructional content, delivered in the module, and then be rewarded with a digital image of a “badge” upon completion and a real metal badge too. These digital badges can serve as recognisers of certifiable skills.
