Supporting Student Wellbeing in the Classroom


Supporting student mental health and wellbeing is always important, but it has become even more urgent in the wake of COVID-19, which has exacerbated pre-existing mental health issues among college students. How can we, as instructors, bolster student wellbeing as we battle the lingering physical and mental effects of the pandemic? In this workshop—drawing on an undergraduate panel on the same topic—we will identify strategies to model, implement, and nurture wellbeing practices in the classroom to encourage a culture of wellness. 


Learning Goals:

After successfully completing this workshop you will be able to:

  • Define wellbeing and discuss what it means to support student wellbeing
  • Develop strategies for facilitating connection, cultivating belonging, and prioritizing care in the classroom
  • Articulate the academic and personal benefits of social connection, belonging, and care as components of wellbeing
