This event is part of the Festival of Education series from 3 - 15 June 2015.

Dr Shelley McKeown and Dr Janet Orchard present this workshop which showcases their ESRC Exploratory Impact award funded project 'Shared space: promoting community cohesion in school classrooms'.

As societies become increasingly diverse, understanding how to promote community cohesion is vital. This workshop aims to get teachers and trainee teachers discussing and reflecting on how schools can play a role in this. Specifically, it will involve group discussion on diversity in schools, a short presentation of research on the use of classroom space followed by a discussion and reflection on best classroom practice.
