Research Excellence Framework and equality workshops materials
Materials from ECU's workshops on the REF and equality for equality and diversity practitioners in England, Scotland and Wales
ECU provided several half-day workshops exploring the equality requirements of the Research Excellence Framework, specifically for equality and diversity practitioners, following requests from colleagues working in higher education institutions.
The workshops were designed to help equality and diversity practitioners understand how to assist and contribute to their institution's REF work.
Topics covered by the workshops were:
- Background to the REF
- Lessons from the Research Assessment Exercise 2008
- ECU's role in the REF
- An overview of equality elements in the REF
- Individual staff circumstances and requests for reduced research outputs
- Developing a code of practice
Note: separate materials for Northern Ireland are available.
