The Teaching Practices and Student Wellbeing project used mixed methods to identify teaching practices that promote student mental health and wellbeing in the Faculties of Arts and Science.
Data collection began in February 2015 with a question module included on the 2015 Undergraduate Experiences Survey. Using these findings, we developed question sets for the student focus groups and instructor interviews conducted during the fall of 2015.
In December 2015, we conducted a preliminary analysis of the student focus group data, and used these findings to revise the questions for the 2016 Undergraduate Experiences Survey, the winter-term student focus groups, and the winter-term instructor interviews.
Data collection wrapped up in March 2016 and data analysis took place over the spring and summer of 2016. We will be sharing our findings throughout the 2016/17 academic year.
