About the Epigeum Wellbeing Hub:
There has been growing concern around the ‘mental health crisis’ at universities, which has been further exacerbated the pandemic. Support for wellbeing issues has never been so critical, however, universities are facing some key challenges when it comes to resourcing this area.
The proposed ‘Wellbeing hub’ aims to support universities in providing holistic wellbeing support. The hub would draw on the concept of microlearning – consisting of a comprehensive range of short interactive online modules covering specific aspects of wellbeing. Additional and refreshed content would be added on a regular and ongoing basis. At Epigeum, we believe that the wellbeing support works best when delivered in a blended way. The aim of the hub, therefore, would be to provide foundational support for low level wellbeing issues which can be easily scaled. In turn this would allow institutions to use their limited resources to focus on developing that support and complementing it with in-person initiatives.
Opportunities for Collaboration:
There is the opportunity to join this project as part of the advisory board. The advisory board will provide expert advice on initial plans for the wellbeing hub, and on content at various stages in development.
Tasks may include:
- Providing feedback on the concept outline
- Involvement in project scoping, and author recommendations
- Reviewing proposed content and topic frameworks
- Feedback on course materials during the development stage
- Post-publication marketing/promotional activities (dependent on availability)
