WIHEA Masterclass: Wellbeing in the Teaching & Learning Environment

Pedagogies and Strategies for the Classroom and Beyond

Wednesday 30 October

In this Masterclass on Wellbeing Pedagogies and Strategies, Elena shared her understanding and ideas about how to foster positive Wellbeing in the Teaching and Learning environment for both students and staff. These were drawn from her pedagogic research about students’ Wellbeing in educational settings as well as practice, including her experience of devising and delivering the module ‘Understanding Wellbeing’.

Attendees had the opportunity to think about and design Wellbeing Strategies for their own educational setting.
