Abstract

The Equality and Diversity (E+D) in the Life Sciences app has been designed as a learning and teaching resource to raise awareness of issues in academic environments and beyond. This course was designed to make our Life Sciences curriculum at the University of Glasgow more inclusive and empowering for students, allowing them to break down any potential barriers they may come across in their career.  The resource has been built around the 9 protected characteristics embedded in the Equality Act, 2010, namely Age, Disability, Gender Reassignment, Marriage and Civil Partnership, Pregnancy and Maternity, Race, Religion and Belief, Sex. The main aim is to equip students with the necessary knowledge about E+D related issues by supporting the development of critical consciousness and thinking in students, by sharing good practice and encouraging a mindset change about E+D.   This app includes 10 problem-based learning case studies, focusing on the different protected characteristics in the Equality Act, 2010, and varying Life Science career paths. The case studies (termed Bio) are linked to Intended learning Outcomes (ILOs), with complementary tasks and resources, allowing students to explore different topics of interest. There are role model interviews that compliments these case studies and are inspirational in their nature.
