Well-being in learning environments

A Resource Library

Over 300 faculty members and instructional staff across SFU are developing resources to foster well-being in learning environments. These resources include in-class activities, teaching practices, content to share with students, and much more.

Rationale for this project

"It is widely accepted that health and well-being are essential elements for effective learning" (El Ansari and Stock, 2010).

When we support well-being in our learning environments, we can better support our students in reaching academic success. Read about the history and research that informs this project.
