LGBTQIA+ inclusion in the curriculum

Join the ACU Ally Network for an online conversation about ways to embed lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual (LGBTQIA+) content in the curriculum.

It is presented by panellists from four different academic fields, who will share strategies related to aspects of gender and sexuality in developing lecture content, assessment tasks, problem scenarios, readings and units, followed by a discussion.

This event is open to all staff and the aim of this conversation is to encourage academic and professional staff thinking about ways LGBTQIA+ perspectives and content may be incorporated in their own units or professional practice.


When: Friday 26 November, 1.30pm-3pm (AEDT) via Zoom
