Degrees of Well-being: Research and Practice in Learning Environments at SFU (9:00 - 9:50) LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Open Session Limited to 80 Participants (First-Come, First-In)

 Positive well-being is a key predictor for learning, yet this is rarely addressed in learning environments in higher education. Health Promotion and the Teaching and Learning Centre at SFU have developed an innovative project to work with faculty members in creating conditions for well-being within the learning environment.  These include flexibility, inclusivity and real-life learning as well as an overall positive classroom culture, among others.  

This session will increase understanding about how the post-secondary learning environment impacts well-being as demonstrated in SFU’s participatory action research study involving 14 faculty members. 

The session will also provide examples and tools for educators to intentionally consider well-being within their teaching practice whether it be through course design, course delivery or student assessment.  

Participants will be invited to share their own experiences that relate to the conditions for well-being, and contribute to furthering knowledge exchange and practice in this area.
