Developing Global Perspectives on Well-Being
Session Time and Location
In recent years, educational developers have been asked to consider our role in the creation of academic cultures that foster individual, community, and institutional well-being (Harward, 2016). For Shuster (2018) and others, “well-being embodies a sense of direction and purpose, positive personal identity, strong relationships, empathy, resilience, and mindfulness” (p. 1). Several scholars are currently exploring these elements of well-being as they relate to both the philosophical and practical dimensions of our work (e.g., Boye, 2018; DiPietro, 2018; Gravett & Bernhagen, 2018). This workshop seeks to contribute to these conversations by developing global perspectives on well-being in educational development.
