Event Date & Time
Everyone, especially instructors who interact with our students on a regular basis, plays an important role in supporting student mental health and wellbeing. In this session, participants will have an opportunity to connect with each other and share creative ideas on embedding strategies that foster wellbeing in their work. Key resources on connecting students to support and services will be included.
Wellbeing is a foundation upon which students can learn. By integrating wellbeing into classroom practices, faculty members will have better rapport with their students, and students will have a stronger sense of belonging in the classroom. Wellbeing teaching practices are good pedagogy. This work is supported by the Wellbeing in Learning Environments research found here: https://wellbeing.ubc.ca/wellbeing-learning-environments-resources
Facilitator: Amanda Unruh, Health Promotion Specialist
This event will be hosted online on Zoom.
