The University of Law partners with TASO
Last week, The University of Law partnered with The Centre for Transforming Access and Student Outcomes in Higher Education (TASO) to close the ethnicity degree awarding gap.
The university is one of six higher education providers that have been selected to work on a TASO project that will develop Theories of Change and evaluation plans for interventions designed to tackle the ethnicity degree awarding gap. This gap refers to the significant difference in the proportions of students from marginalised ethnic backgrounds being awarded a first or upper-second-class undergraduate degree when compared to white students.
Theories of Change will be developed for a wide range of multifaceted interventions being delivered by the partner HE providers, which involve: adapting assessment practice, developing curricula, financial support, harnessing student voice, peer mentoring, placement and careers support, skills development, and using learner analytics are all important aspects of educational improvement.
TASO aims to publish these Theories of Change and evaluation plans as prototypes for the sector to use in Spring 2024.
