Well-being in Learning Environments Dialogue Series

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

SFU Health Promotion and UBC Health Promotion and Education planned to host an inter-institutional symposium on well-being in learning environments in May 2020 as an opportunity for faculty, educators, and staff from both institutions to connect on the topic of how well-being relates to teaching practices and learning environments. As with many events slated for this year, the planning team reconsidered how it might provide this opportunity and partnered with BCcampus to hold a virtual event series that is open to post-secondary educators from across the province.

SFU Health Promotion, UBC Health Promotion & Education and BCcampus are proud to host Thriving Beyond Campuses: Well-being in Learning Environments, a dialogue series connecting B.C. post-secondary schools. The four-part dialogue series is a free virtual event that will connect post-secondary faculty, educators and staff around the topic of how well-being relates to teaching practices and learning environments.

Through interactive keynotes, panels and roundtable sessions between November 10, 2020 until March of 2021, attendees will learn about best practices and theories related to creating conditions for well-being in learning environments, share their own practices and experiences, and connect with other like-minded faculty and staff. Attendees will also have the opportunity to consider students’ point of view of well-being, institutional support, and campus experiences, while providing their input on how institutions can better support well-being in learning environments.
