Well-being in Learning Environments

22nd July 2015

Simon Fraser University’s (SFU’s) Well-being in Learning Environments project focuses on creating conditions for well-being in learning environments. Through a partnership with SFU’s Teaching and Learning Centre, the Health Promotion team has engaged SFU faculty members to create conditions for well-being through the way they design and deliver courses. A resource outlining 10 conditions for well-being was developed based on literature as well as stakeholder feedback. These conditions include opportunities for social connection, instructor support, positive classroom culture, flexibility, access to services and supports, real life learning, civic engagement, personal development, optimal challenge and inclusivity.
