Hackathon – 22nd February 2022, online via TEAMS.
In February 2022, we successfully held a hackathon to capture and explore existing approaches to EDI and digital practices in field teaching based on the experiences of academic staff. Building on the responses from our participatory groups, as the image below reveals, we have been developing our ideas to better support the community to adopt more inclusive approaches to field trip delivery.
