Wellbeing in Teaching and Learning Community of Practice: December Meeting
December 7 at 2:30 pm - 3:20 pm
Welcome to one of our new Community of Practice group for the upcoming academic year. We are excited to offer this valuable and needed opportunity to support your teaching excellence, and of course, your students.
There is strong evidence that student wellbeing is critically linked to learning, engagement, resiliency and academic success. Wellbeing is a factor contributing to academic tenacity and helps students weather the challenges and demands of the transition into, and while attending university.
In addition, the classroom environment and professor approaches to teaching can greatly and positively influence student wellbeing. Student, faculty and staff wellbeing is an institutional priority as documented in our most recent strategic plans and is strongly linked to the mandates expressed in other institutional initiatives around EDI, ARIE, IAP, and Climate Action.
The objective of this CoP is to bring teaching and support faculty together for the opportunity to share, discuss and gain ideas, resources, challenges and successes for teaching wellbeing, and to offer support and mentorship for doing so. We will also invite different faculty members to some meetings to highlight some of their successful practices.
