Mapping career in Higher Education

The Centre for Teaching Innovation would like to invite you to a workshop on Mapping career in Higher Education on Friday 15th February, 2-4pm, Regent RS152/153.

In this two-hour workshop, participants will be invited to consider their experience of ‘career’ in the higher education sector in the context of prevailing career narratives eg: ladders, pipelines, trajectories…

We will use a simple mapping tool to explore our own potted career histories; to reflect on the factors which shape our working lives and to examine career archetypes and terminology more closely: the leaky pipeline, the glass ceiling, the glass cliff and the glass escalator. This informal session is suitable for staff in all types of role in the university and at all stages in their working life.


Dr Kate Carruthers Thomas is a Senior Research Fellow and Athena SWAN Project Manager at Birmingham City University, UK. Kate specialises in interdisciplinary enquiry into contemporary higher education, gender and inequalities, using poetics and graphics as well as more conventional academic forms to present and discuss her work. Kate is an experienced presenter and workshop facilitator, a published poet and an accidental cartoonist!
