Enhancing learning and teaching about mental health across the disciplines
Developers of User and Carer Involvement in Education
The Developers of User and Carer Involvement in Education (DUCIE) network is there for you.
DUCIE aims to enhance the involvement of users and carers in learning and teaching through development of a support network for user and carer involvement development workers employed within UK higher education institutions (HEIs).
Meetings are held two to three times a year, with email and telephone contact maintained in between through the DUCIE jiscmail discussion list and online chats here on the mhhehub. Find out more.
A series of meetings is currently being planned, on academic writing for involvement workers. Details to follow.
If you are a user and carer involvement worker in a Higher Education Institution (you may be employed under a different title, such as ‘development worker', ‘consumer academic' or ‘administrator'), you are welcome to join DUCIE. You are also welcome to bring along with you a colleague who supports your role within your institution.
To join DUCIE and/or for further information, contact Jill Anderson firstname.lastname@example.org
