Critical Discussions about Social Inclusion is an AALL-sponsored Forum which has been organised to provide an opportunity for academic and professional staff to critically reflect on the debates, stories, practices and policy surround the ‘new’ social inclusion agenda in higher education.

We invite you to participate in this discussion, and/or also encourage you to consider submitting a paper, poster or facilitating a workshop or roundtable that critically reflects on one of the following themes:
 
·         categories of identity;

·         policy and practice in relation to participation and retention; and

·         indicators and measures of the success of social inclusion programmes and/or practices.

This free Forum will bring together key thinkers in higher education to critically reflect on aspects of the inclusivity agenda, notably

·         Professor Simon Marginson, University of Melbourne

·         Professor Alison Lee, University of Technology, Sydney
