Event details

This first of two professional development events is part of QAA Scotland's Collaborative Cluster on student mental wellbeing and the curriculum. The Cluster is being led by Glasgow Caledonian University in collaboration with Heriot-Watt University, University of Stirling and sparqs. The aim of the Cluster is to build the capacity of academic staff, and others, in designing curricula and creating teaching and learning environments that are inclusive and promote student mental wellbeing.

This event will explore a number of key questions:

1. What is the impact of the curriculum on student mental wellbeing?

2. Is there an appetite across the sector for a Special Interest Group that would continue after the end of this Collaborative Cluster project? If so, what would be its scope and remit?

3. How can academic staff and students partner to create more inclusive curricula?

4. What training needs do academic staff and students have in relation to this topic area?

5. What key resources would help academic staff and students in promoting student mental wellbeing?

This session should be of interest to:

·   Academic Staff

·   Programme Leaders

·   Students, Student Representatives and Students’ Association Staff

·   Student Wellbeing and Professional Services Staff

·   Heads of Quality

·   Academic Developers
