Learning and wellbeing with Gareth Hughes - for staff

In this workshop, we will explore the relationship between student learning and student wellbeing and look at how the curriculum can support good student mental health.

Every aspect of university life has a potential impact on the wellbeing of students. The curriculum is important to mental health and wellbeing because it is one of the few guaranteed points of contact between students and the university. The curriculum is central to the student experience providing focus, structure, connection and purpose. If universities are to take mental health and wellbeing seriously, the role of the curriculum must be core to their response. Research has also shown that the way students learn and the way they are taught and assessed, can have significant impact on their wellbeing – positive and negative. Drawing on the open access toolkit Education for Mental Health, we will examine this research evidence, to establish key principles and some practical steps staff can take to enhance the learning and wellbeing of their students, through curriculum design and delivery.
