Excellence in Inclusivity: Service User Involvement in Higher Education


Keynote speaker Prof Joe Duffy, Queen’s University Belfast, speaks about service user involvement in higher education teaching, outlining seven key themes to consider in developing and delivering meaningful and effective service user involvement in teaching.

Preceding the keynote presentation, Dr Michael Feely, Trinity College Dublin, introduces a pilot programme where service users were hired as part-time staff at the University to co-design, co-deliver and co-assess a module for undergraduate students in the social sciences on how to support people with a disability. Orla and Brendan, two service-user lecturers, speak about their own experiences (and the experience of others) as lecturers on this programme.

The focus of this webinar is on involvement in teaching, however, the key points resonate strongly when aiming for inclusivity in PPI in research.
