BU Humanising Special Interest Group

Welcome to the Humanising Special Interest Group at Bournemouth University

We are a group of scholars and practitioners who have an interest in what makes us feel human and how this is linked to health and wellbeing. We use a lifeworld approach and subjective experience as the basis for our understanding.

At Bournemouth University we have developed a philosophically driven approach to humanising practices in relation to learning,  service provision, caring and the workplace. It is based on existential understandings from a lifeworld approach and privileges subjective experience and incorporates embodied knowing. Find out more about humanising practice and the work at BU.

We have two meetings a year where members discuss issues following two presentations and share their on-going work into humanising education, practice and research.

The next meeting will be:

ON: 6th December 2018, 2-4.30

AT: Bournemouth University, Lansdowne Campus, Bournemouth House (BH1 3LH), Room B225

Speakers:

Dr Camila Devis-Rozental, Senior Lecturer, OVC, BU Humanising Higher Education by practicing with an embodied relational understanding
