The 'MTU Wellbeing Hub' is a new initiative in MTU to support students on their journey through higher education. The Wellbeing Hub will share health and wellbeing content for students in the form of engaging podcasts and videos on areas of health and wellbeing. To make this content as engaging as possible we would like to create bespoke content for students in MTU which is developed and supported by students.

 

 

This project is funded as part of MTU’s ‘Strategic Alignment of Teaching and Learning Enhancement 2020’ funding from the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, coordinated by the Teaching and Learning Unit in Munster Technological University.

THE AIM OF THE PROJECT

Is to develop and disseminate custom-made rich multimedia content (podcast and video content) for students in MTU to support their health and wellbeing.

WHAT IS THE PROJECT PLAN

  • Produce up to 8 podcasts as a series of health and wellbeing supports for students. These will be conversations with staff and students in MTU as well as experts from various fields outside of the University.
  • Engage with members from the student body to create videos/podcast on health and wellbeing areas that are pertinent to students in MTU
  • Develop short videos/animations to circulate to the student body on areas of health and wellbeing which will be housed on “The MTU Wellbeing Hub” channel on Youtube as well as other relevant online spaces in MTU.
  • Promote “The MTU Wellbeing Hub” across all student platforms to maximise engagement
