Embracing an Ecological Approach to Student Health and Well-being: Practical Approaches for Faculty

Jason Geary, Teaching Consultant, Centre for Innovation in Teaching and Learning (CITL)

Students are reporting mounting levels of stress, anxiety and depression on university campuses across the country. While medical personnel and mental health professionals on university campuses continually scramble to find the resources to address these growing trends, the impact that positive learning environments and caring faculty can have on overall student well-being is often missing from the conversation. This 50-minute interactive session will discuss student well-being and will highlight how faculty at Memorial can have a positive and lasting impact on the overall well-being of students. In addition, both on-campus and community resources to assist faculty will be highlighted.

Time: 1:00 p.m. - 1:50 p.m.

Location: McCann Centre, Education Building, room ED 2030B
