The current iteration of the Inclusivity Experiment is focusing on inclusive educational experiences. This body of work supports creating learning and teaching environments and practices which are engaging and welcoming to all.

Up to 16 Associate positions will be offered under a new Inclusive Practice in Education Fellowship Program, to support this aim. Applications are open to UTS staff, students, and practitioners from outside the university.

The program will run over ten months from October 2021. It aims to bring together education-based academics and practitioners to build their capacity to deliver inclusive education in the broadest sense, access targeted support, and work together to contribute to the system change needed for inclusive practice to flourish.

The Fellowship Program’s Associate positions will be connected the Centre for Social Justice and Inclusion and supported by the initiative’s collaborative partners: Canva, Centre for Inclusive Design, Institute for Interactive Media and Learning and the UTS Transdisciplinary School.
