STUDENT MENTAL WELLBEING PROJECT OUTPUTS NOW PUBLISHED
|Date:||December 15 - 2020|
Project outputs from year one of our Student Mental Wellbeing collaborative cluster are now available!
Led by Glasgow Caledonian University, in collaboration with Heriot-Watt University, University of Stirling and sparqs, this collaborative cluster has been working to develop the processes and tools that academic staff use to design curricula. Reflecting on the outcomes from a fantastic series of professional development events in 2020, which featured leading voices from across UK higher education, we are delighted to publish the cluster’s 2019-20 project report plus a summary leaflet.
Delivering four professional development events across 2020, the report considers how these events helped to develop the capacity of academic staff in their design of inclusive curricula to promote student mental wellbeing. The project report is accompanied by a short summary leaflet, which captures key messages from the events and highlights different ways in which curricula design can support the mental health of students and staff.
As student mental wellbeing continues to be a key priority for the sector, we are pleased that the work of this collaborative cluster will continue into our new Resilient Learning Communities Theme in 2021, focusing on our BAME and LGBTQ+ communities.
