NEWS: EdCan Network – Webinar: How can we improve K-12 school wellbeing?
Tuesday, June 15th at 1:00 pm ET
Presented by Emily Larson (Senior Advisor of Schools and Wellbeing, The Behavioural Insights Team)
This webinar is primarily for school district leaders, principals, and vice-principals, and school or district wellbeing leads, as well as anyone interested in K-12 staff wellbeing.
We know that wellbeing – especially cases of burnout – are issues in Canadian schools. We know a lot of this is systemic – involving organizational culture, structures, priorities, and policies at various levels of the education system. However, research is still evolving about how approaches taken at the school-level or the individual-level could help educators cope with their daily stress. In a 12-month research project, The Behavioural Insights Team (BIT) set out to develop two simple approaches that could be scaled district-wide.
In this webinar, we will share findings from this research project outlining what worked, what didn’t work, and lessons learned that can be used to support education leaders in ensuring their staff’s wellbeing.
