What teaching practices promote student well-being? This question was answered in a TLEF-funded study conducted at UBC that used a mixed methods approach to identify teaching strategies that support student well-being. Strategies are grouped into three main themes: 1) Connection and Social Belonging, 2) Learning and Motivation to Learn, and 3) Holistic support
The authors of this study have created a blog site where you can learn more about the project and can access relevant resources, including an informational video, a reflection tool for faculty, and a project infographic.
