In September 2022 ELEP was established to follow up on UCL’s Eugenics Inquiry Response report education recommendations. A key recommendation from this report related to devising a framework for teaching and learning when working with UCL’s historic links to eugenics and an invitation to consider how engaging with this legacy would support the development of inclusive teaching and learning communities.  

“It is clearly important to signpost a commitment to create a safe and inclusive space for education about eugenics and its legacies, as well as other sensitive issues. A protocol should be developed... covering expectations around student and staff conduct, protocols for dealing with any incidents that arise and a briefing document that outlines and explains acceptable and unacceptable language.”

Join the conversation

We would like to invite staff members from across UCL to attend a roundtable session to hear your views on the development of a framework for teaching and learning. The roundtables will be small group sessions of between 8-10 staff members. They are an important first stage in thinking about questions such as:

  • how we do this work as a community?
  • what is important to include in a framework of this kind?
  • how we will know how well we have done?

It is important that these discussions are cross-faculty, and we will work to ensure that our work is representative of all staff groups across the series of roundtables. We will also work within a principled space policy. Download the draft policy (PDF). 

Please watch this short introductory video to learn more about the roundtable process.
