Wellbeing is too often overlooked in our school systems. What good are we achieving if students perform well in school but don’t feel connection, belonging, or meaning in their lives? Teachers feel the effects, too – the focus on teaching to the test can limit teachers’ opportunity to develop personal connections with students and to prioritize their own sense of purpose and wellbeing.
It’s time to emphasize what actually matters. Through this course, participants will learn to:
- Put their own and their students’ wellbeing first.
- Explore and recommit to the reasons they got into education in the first place.
- Use globally recognized tools for assessing and developing wellbeing.
Participants will leave with two Learning Progressions that support the design, assessment, and measurement of wellbeing, and that can be used with your students right away.
