Health, wellbeing, social justice & sustainable development are strategically important issues for Universities and society in general. We need to find innovative ways and techniques to engage our students in dialogue about these issues and how they relate to their disciplines and areas of study. Health Impact Assessment (HIA) is a recognised, flexible approach for considering the wider effects of local and national policies, projects or initiatives and how they, in turn, may affect people’s health and wellbeing.
This workshop explores how HIA provides a technique to facilitate dialogue with students about how their disciplines and areas of study relate to health, wellbeing & sustainable development. Come and discuss how HIA might be used in your discipline and programmes to support student learning, and find out how you can access a free online e-learning resource to support you.
