Living and Learning, Learning and Teaching: mental health in higher education
Date: 30 - 31 March 2010 Time: 09.30 - 17.00
Venue: George Fox Building, Lancaster University
Mental wellbeing and ill health features as a curriculum area across the disciplines in higher education, and as a key concern for those involved in learning and teaching.
What do learners learn from what we teach? How else do they learn about mental wellbeing and ill health? What are the related issues and concepts that we neglect to teach?
This interdisciplinary conference sets out to answer these questions and pose others, to present some new ideas about Threshold Concepts and the role of lived experience in learning and teaching and to fly some kites for the future - exploring how the learning and legacy of the Mental Health in Higher Education project (mhhe) can be built upon.
Keynote speakers include:
• Prof. Glynis Cousin - Writer on Threshold Concepts, National Teaching Fellow
• Prof. Ann Davis - Director, Centre of Excellence in Interdisciplinary Mental Health
• Prof. Gail Hornstein - Author of Agnes's Jacket: a psychologist's search for the meanings of madness
This event will be of interest to, and gain from the contribution of, lecturers and tutors, practitioners, service user and carer educators, practice mentors, students and others with an interest in learning and teaching about mental health. A limited number of bursaries for service user and carer educators are available.
Booking deadlines: 22 January 2010 (Earlybird) 12 March 2010 (All bookings)
