In this HERG@KCL session we will be looking at universities' engagement with research evidence relating to their own practices and policies, with a particular focus on social justice and equality.

We will be joined by two guests: Mansor Rezaian, Head of What Works at King's and Omar Khan, Chief Executive of TASO (Transforming Access and Student Outcomes in Higher Education). Between them they offer us an internal institutional perspective and a wider cross-sector national viewpoint. The session will be facilitated by Duna Sabri, Visiting Research Fellow in CPPR at King's.

We will start with a brief overview of the policy environment in England as it relates to HEI's educational practices and policies. We'll explore with our guests' input two over-arching questions:

  1. What are HE institutions and HE agencies and campaigning groups 'producing' as evidence? What is its significance? What are the various intentions and motivations in this production?
  2. How is this evidence' consumed' among students, staff, policymakers and the public?

There will be ample time for a discussion of these practices of 'production' and 'consumption' and the extent to which they help us to build a shared critical understanding of our equality and social justice priorities in higher education and how to advance them.
