Abstract / Description of output

The Health Humanities is a movement that seeks to promote engagement with arts and humanities disciplines as a way of helping professionals, patients, informal carers and members of the public to understand healthcare more fully. In this paper I draw parallels between health and learning and suggest that a similar approach would be of value for academic developers working with colleagues and students. I indicate the potential scope for the Learning Arts and Humanities, and provide examples of existing practice, in which the methods and sensibilities of literary studies are shedding light on learning and teaching in Higher Education.
