Preparatory reading for health and social care students: using ASK4Books to facilitate academic skills development and transitions into a practice-based professional programme

From September 2016, we are introducing ASK4Books to 1st year nursing students, to promote an inclusive and equitable approach to teaching our diverse student population. This is a set of activities, centred around reading novels/biographies related to health and social care. ASK4Books will help to orientate students to the complex nature of healthcare settings, raise awareness of groups with protected characteristics within healthcare contexts and promote development of academic skills.

This Case Study won the University’s Inclusive Practice Award in 2015.

Welcome to Dundee University’s Inclusive Practice Showcase

This site has been developed to provide examples of good practice in making the University a more inclusive place to work and learn. Each example provided is a description of how an activity has improved access to, and quality of, an educational experience or service provision for a specific group.

Several of the case studies on this site have won the University’s Inclusive Practice Award. This is an annual award open to staff in Academic Schools and Professional Services. We are currently inviting submissions for the 2015 Award. The deadline for submissions this year is 29th April:

Please feel free to find out more about the Showcase, browse the case studies, and be inspired to adopt the good practice described here in your own work – or consider contributing your own case study!
