Building Connections: Well-being in Teaching and Learning

Hosted by the Teaching and Learning Centre, Health Promotion and Faculty Association 


Application Deadline: Friday, January 20, 2017

Join the Teaching and Learning Centre, Health Promotion and the SFU Faculty Association in exploring the connections within well-being in teaching and learning. Lightning talks by faculty members, teaching assistants and students will be shared with opportunities for dynamic discussion.  Interactive activities will uncover how you can support student well-being as well as your own. 

We invite interactive and innovative proposals from SFU faculty, instructors, teaching assistants, tutor-markers, instructional staff, and administrators that demonstrate how well-being is considered in your teaching practice, research, or scholarly inquiry into teaching and learning to benefit your students’ learning.

We also invite proposals from graduate and undergraduate students to highlight the impact of specific teaching practices on student well-being.
