For the Fall 2013 semester, the Student Health Advocacy Committee was incorporated into a 4th year Health Sciences class, which enabled the students to get credit for their work in health advocacy. The focus of the project for 2013-2014 was to engage students in SFU Health Promotion's Well-being in Learning Environments project. The SHAC team engaged other students to provide feedback, input and stories related to how learning experiences can impact well-being. They used a variety of different techniques to engage students including interviews, video responses, kiosks or discussion boards in the AQ, and social media.
SFU Health Promotion will be using this feedback within the Well-being in Learning Environments project, to share with instructors ideas around how they can support well-being within their classes.
