Event Date & Time

  • December 15, 2020

Event Description

“I care about my students’ wellbeing but I don’t have time! How do I fit that into my course too? I don’t know what I could do?” Maybe these are some of the thoughts going through your mind as you prepare for teaching winter courses online. We know that student wellbeing is suffering even more since virtual learning dominates and, as faculty, we have experienced “fuller plates” with the increased demands of navigating online teaching. We are keen to share with you our TEACHERS Project to guide you in adopting simple practices for online teaching to address student wellbeing. If we all do a little bit, collectively, we can have a huge impact on the health, resiliency and academic success of our students.

The program consists of a course with self-paced modules in Canvas, online workshops with experiential learning opportunities, and one-on-one consultation support with an educational consultant.┬áThis particular workshop is designed to complement module 7, “Creating a Supportive Learning Environment“. Each module takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete. To further explore this topic, we recommend you proceed through the module at your own time.
