On Thursday 9 February we offer college staff an exciting chance to road test a new game, aimed at enhancing teaching and learning research skills. This event offers the opportunity to work with the game's creator to try it out and discuss whether it would be a suitable professional development resource for colleges. There is space for only 12 delegates so hurry if you or someone you know would be interested in attending.

Student mental health resource
One in three people are estimated to be affected by mental illness in any one year. Anecdotal evidence from college staff indicates a large rise in students presenting with mental health issues. In response to requests from colleges and their staff, Sandy MacLean, Advisor with particular expertise in student mental health, has led the development of an online Student Mental Health course, which aligns with the Professional Standards for Lecturers in Scotland's Colleges within the area of guidance and support.
