Empowering preservice teachers to develop personal and professional resilience

Abstract/brief summary:

This presentation aims to explore practical strategies preservice teachers can use to develop personal and professional resilience.

Participants will be introduced to the five aspects of resilience as a multi-dimensional construct. There will be a focus on the exercise of agency in employing practical strategies to overcome daily professional challenges.
