Collaboration as a strategy for promoting equity in educationMaynooth


We are delighted to invite you to a talk by Professor Mel Ainscow. This presentation will draw on his extensive experience and research to provide guidance regarding the conditions that are needed to make collaboration work. It will focus on the major challenge facing education systems around the world, that of achieving equity. In so doing, it will start from the assumption that, under the right conditions, learner diversity can be a catalyst for educational improvement.


Mel Ainscow is internationally recognised as an authority on the promotion of inclusion and equity in education. He is Emeritus Professor of Education at the University of Manchester, Professor of Education at the University of Glasgow, and Adjunct Professor at Queensland University of Technology. A long-term consultant to UNESCO, he is currently working on international efforts to promote equity and inclusion globally. Examples of his writing can be found in: ‘Struggles for equity in education: The selected works of Mel Ainscow’, published in the Routledge World Library of Educationalists series.
