Building Connections: Well-being in Teaching and Learning
Hosted by the Teaching and Learning Centre, Health Promotion and SFU Faculty Association
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Application Deadline: Friday, January 20, 2017
Positive well-being is a key predictor for learning and student success. The Teaching and Learning Centre and Health Promotion have been working with instructional staff to create conditions for Well-being in Learning Environments.
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.
The format for the event includes a series of Lightning Talks. Lightning Talks, are 7 minute dynamic and engaging talks on an exciting aspect of your work, a significant professional question, or lesson learned about well-being, teaching and learning. There will be 5 minutes allowed for questions from the audience. Interspersed, there will be time for attendees to meet and greet with the speakers to spark a sharing of ideas, collaboration and continued conversation during the session and beyond.
