In this course, educators will blend reflection, exploration and research to develop understanding of how to practice and teach wellness. The course begins with a two-day retreat-style meeting in which participants will explore dimensions of wellness through experiential activities, and discuss theory and philosophy of the role of wellness in education. Following this face-to-face meeting, participants will engage through Moodle over the course of a month to dive deeper into theory and practice of wellness, with a focus on how wellness can support academic achievement and growth. At a final face-to-face meeting, participants share their learning and create personalized action plans for the upcoming school year.
Audience: All educators
Recognize the importance of wellbeing for educator efficacy and student success. Participants will develop their understanding of wellness practices for themselves and will identify ways to implement wellness strategies in their classrooms.
