As part of the LEaD series of Learning and Teaching Fora , the City Students’ Union has been invited to present a workshop on Student Wellbeing to staff at City.
The event will encourage staff attending to actively participate and share good practice. After a very short exercise and an introduction from the SU Officers (Kristina, Nazia & Tuna), groups will focus on a student profile that they are assigned. They will be asked to explore the student experience of their assigned City student over their time at City, by analysing a timeline and statistics while trying to tackle obstacles faced by their student.
The aim of this workshop is to highlight some of the issues that City students face and how it may affect student wellbeing and mental health. Staff attending are encouraged to consider the #stepchange framework and be creative in the way they approach issues, solutions and the overall wellbeing of their assigned student.
The Union understands that every City student is different from one another, but issues highlighted in the timelines may be common to many. This is an opportunity for all of us at City to explore student facing issues in the context of different student identities.
The workshop will be facilitated by the SU sabbatical officers: Kristina Perelygina : SU President |Tuna Kunt : SU Vice-President (Education) | Nazia Bharde : SU VP (Activities & Development)
The City Learning and Teaching forum has been established to enable academics and staff involved in learning, teaching and student support to discuss ideas, explore challenges, share good practice and find out about new developments.
The lunchtime fora will take place once or twice per term. Each one is based around a different leaning and teaching theme. They will be informal and on a drop-in basis and anyone with an interest in education can come along.
The forum will be overseen by the City Learning and Teaching Committee and will feed into the development of learning and teaching policy and strategy at City.
The full list of dates and themes can be linked to below and we look forward to seeing you at a future event.
