Well-being in Learning Environments Dialogue Series

Thriving Beyond Campuses: A Dialogue Series Connecting B.C. Post-Secondary Schools

SFU Health Promotion partnered with UBC Health Promotion & Education and BCcampus to host Thriving Beyond Campuses: Well-being in Learning Environments, a dialogue series that took place between November 2020 and February 2021. Over 200 faculty, educators, and staff attended the four-part virtual dialogue series to engage in inter-institutional conversations on topics related to well-being in learning environments in higher education.  

Sessions included a keynote presentation and panel discussion on cognitive bandwidth featuring Cia Verschelden, roundtable sessions highlighting best practices on embedding wellbeing in teaching and learning, and a panel of change agents who shared their observations of systemic changes that support wellbeing in learning environments.

A summary of the themes from the dialogue series, participant feedback, and recommendations can be found here
