The report aims to identify the challenges and barriers in recruiting and retaining trainees, and…

GREAT STUFF ON STORIFY #mhcurr

Recent seminar well portrayed on STORIFY - storyline holds together well and grabs attention - loads of useful links - pics add drama and human interest - tweets contribute massive sense of 'here and now' - no better example of value of stories in teaching and learning and applicability of apps such as STORIFY in enabling this. Mustn't forget to credit much much hard work from usual suspects in putting this together so quickly and professionally. THANK YOU

CREATIVE TWEETS

Blog
Hey Jill.
Just read Irene Mckintosh blog on creative tweeting. She has encouraged people to try and 'tweet' a work of fiction (limited edition obviously!)- I think this is a wonderful idea - and taking it further - we could tweet a rolling creative narrative - with people adding tweets that develop the story further - what do you and colleagues at the current seminar think?

A pedagogy for uncertain times

A pedagogy for uncertain times has itself to be uncertain.  It is open, it is daring, it is risky, it is, itself unpredictable. . .  A pedagogy for uncertainty will be ontologically disturbing and enthralling all at once.  It will be electric, as one move sparks another and in unpredictable ways. . . This pedagogy is a form of restrained anarchy; even a disciplined anarchy – with its spaces and its risks

Posted by Jill Anderson on September 4, 2017 at 16:30 0 Comments

How well are the UK’s universities equipped to meet the challenge posed by students’ mental health and wellbeing needs?  On the one hand, there is a growing public narrative suggesting a ‘crisis’ in students’ mental health, with frequent stories of long delays in accessing counselling, and tragic reports of student suicides. On the other, young people today are often accused of being ‘snowflakes’ unable to cope with ordinary life events. What these narratives are likely to conceal, though,…
