A new toolkit designed to support postsecondary educators in promoting student wellbeing and resilience in the classroom is now online.
Thriving in the Classroom identifies four kinds of resilience grounded in research and evidence-based practices: community resilience, personal resilience, academic resilience, and career resilience. The toolkit offers practical resources which can easily be inserted directly into the curriculum, resources to support educators in designing curriculum and utilizing pedagogical approaches that promote resilience, as well as in depth research for those interested in learning more about student resilience.
Whether it be in-person or a virtual classroom, the resource aims to build classroom conditions that remove barriers and maximize students’ potential to thrive.
The toolkit was developed by a diverse team of postsecondary faculty, mental health professionals, learning experts, and community partners at Colleges and Universities across Ontario (Centennial College, Humber College, Sheridan College, Trent University, The University of Toronto – OISE, Western University – Ivey School of Business, Ryerson (X) University, and the Centre for Innovation in Campus Mental Health), with generous funding support from eCampus Ontario’s Virtual Learning Strategy.
