Listening Rooms for Neurodivergent* Staff

The Community of Inclusive Practice, with sponsorship from the Disability Steering Group and HROD have commissioned a Listening Rooms Project, an award-winning research methodology, to hear the voices of our neurodivergent students and staff.  

What are Listening Rooms? 

Listening Rooms is an initiative of the Student Experience, Teaching, and Learning (SETL) team at Sheffield Hallam University. It works by recording a conversation between two friends. Participants are given a set of prompt cards to discuss with one another. The conversation is expected to last around 60 minutes. It is then transcribed and anonymised before being analysed via Round Table Analysis to review what is working and what is not. Based on the findings of the analysis, recommendations are presented. 


Are you Neurodivergent?* 

*Neurodivergence includes ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism, epilepsy, OCD, bipolar, and more…(no official diagnosis required)
