We are delighted to have Gareth Hughes presenting our next webinar. The session will explore the relationships between student wellbeing and student learning and how teaching and curriculum development can support both. The session will introduce the Education for Mental Health toolkit, which is hosted by Advance HE. Drawing on evidence gathered for the development of the toolkit, it will explore how evidence informed, pedagogic practice can positively influence student learning and wellbeing through scaffolding, learner development, social integration and taking a learning focussed approach. It will also examine the relationship between built environment and wellbeing, and opportunities to use subject-based content to enhance wellbeing. The webinar will be of interest to anyone involved with learning and teaching.
The webinar is free to attend: please reserve your place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Joining instructions will be sent out in w/c 21st March.
