Project Overview

Student mental wellbeing - creating inclusive curricula and learning environments is a collaborative cluster project. The project aims to develop the processes and tools that academic staff use to design curricula. This will help staff create teaching and learning environments that are inclusive and promote student mental wellbeing. The cluster is being led by Glasgow Caledonian University in collaboration with Heriot-Watt University, University of Stirling and sparqs. The project team will achieve their aims through hosting professional development activities and exploring the possibility of establishing a special interest group on this topic.

Further webinars will focus on the topics generated in the interactive workshop sessions at the January 2020 event; partnership working, accessibility and co-creation.
