The Eleanor Glanville Institute is the University of Lincoln's department for diversity and inclusion. Led by Professor Belinda Colston, the Institute specialises in the development and evaluation of EDI strategies and interventions, and their impact across the sector. We carry out interdisciplinary research that critiques and challenges social exclusion and inequality in contemporary society, exploring issues of, and connections between, gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, class and disability. Outcomes of our research inform and influence evidence-based policy and shape best-practice both within the UK and internationally.

Welcome to Conscious Inclusion: Empowering Individuals

The University of Lincoln has launched a new online microcredential course exploring Conscious Inclusion from a range of different perspectives.

Microcredential courses are easily accessible short courses which cover key practical and theoretical in-demand skills. They can be used to simply boost your CV or as a route into further study. After successfully completing this course, participants will receive ten Master's-level credits.

Developed and led by an expert team within the Eleanor Glanville Institute, this programme offers learners the opportunity to explore key concepts, develop and deepen their knowledge, and build their understanding of Conscious Inclusion, covering topics such as embodying inclusivity, cultural sustainability, and inclusive workplaces.

By gaining insights into oneself and a deeper appreciation and understanding of how to embody inclusivity, learners can develop their own original thinking and inclusive practice.

As well as individual learners wanting to increase their EDI literacy, this online programme is also suitable for businesses and employees and can be delivered as part of an organisation's EDI training provision. It is also ideal for EDI teams working within HR departments.

The course runs from w/c 3 April 2023 to 12 June 2023.

How You Study

Aimed at staff at all levels, this course provides a replacement to conventional unconscious bias training, departing from an approach of simply raising awareness of the existence of bias, towards eliciting long-term behavioural change. It will form the foundation of inclusive leadership. This microcredential is organised into eight learning units which provide the students with a strong, critical foundation of knowledge and understanding:

Unit 1: Why conscious inclusion?
Unit 2: Becoming conscious (evaluation, reflection, awareness)
Unit 3: Embodying inclusivity
Unit 4: Inclusive teams
Unit 5: Inclusive workplaces
Unit 6: Cultural sustainability
Unit 7: Inclusive Toolkit 1 - Evidence for Action
Unit 8: Inclusive Toolkit 2 - Actions and Solutions

The microcredential is delivered in a combination of online micro-lectures, videos and reading content (relevant research literature) aimed at guided self-study, alongside a series of synchronous seminars and workshops that facilitate group discussion, critical thinking, problem-solving and peer learning. These seminars and workshops are presented as 'grand challenges' requiring group collaboration and team-working. As the microcredential progresses, these sessions transition to action-learning sets, tackling real work-placed challenges for the learners.

How you are assessed

The assessment for this programme is project based (80%), where the knowledge gained from the course is used to undertake an equality impact assessment of a policy, practice, event, or initiative within either a professional or educational setting. Further assessment (20%) is coursework-based.

The assessment submission date is Monday 12 June 2023.

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a certification of their achievement and ten Master's-level credits.
