Geography workshop: Cultivating cumulative assessment
Michael Chiles, Head of Geography and Principal Examiner

Plenary keynote lecture: The Missing: Why diversity and representation matters in History and Geography
Anjana Khatwa, Earth Scientist & TV Presenter
For over 20 years I have been an anomaly. One of the very few BAME faces in working in the heritage and conservation sector. But why does this matter? Without diverse and equitable representation, we cannot hope to deliver an effective service within the natural and cultural heritage sector that speaks for all of our society. So how can we as learning specialists, champions of these subjects that underpin our understanding of time and space, affect a change that could literally transform the face of the sector? Through championing role models, decolonising the curriculum and challenging the stereotypes and fear that exists of a subject misunderstood within the BAME community, together we can catalyse change.
