Let’s Start with “How Are You Doing?”: How Resilience and Hope Can Shape a New Normal for Learning and Teaching
May 15, 2020
The ongoing disruption of higher education provoked significant anxiety in students and faculty. It also presented new challenges and opportunities to support students’ and faculty members’ social-emotional learning and psychosocial needs. As campus leaders at all levels anticipated the implications of the “new normal” for the fall semester, how were they thinking about the intersections of learning, well-being, and resilience? What were the mechanisms for encouraging hope and resilience inside and outside the classroom, and across stakeholders? This discussion-based webinar brought together national and international experts to explore ways campuses can support students and faculty not merely to survive in challenging times, but to thrive.
This last webinar in the Faculty Fridays series was followed by Leading-Edge Tools for Student Health and Wellness, an “after party” sponsored by EVERFI and MOVISTA. A lively post-webinar discussion of how best to support student health and wellness occurred.
