Event description
UBC Health Promotion & Education and SFU Health Promotion are proud to present the launch of the first ever Building Connections Symposium.

About this Event

This symposium is a free full-day event that connects SFU and UBC faculty, educators and staff around the topic of how well-being relates to teaching practices and learning environments.

Through interactive talks and breakout sessions, attendees will learn about best practices and theories related to creating conditions for well-being in learning environments, share their own practices and experiences, and connect with other like-minded faculty and staff. Attendees will also have the opportunity to consider students’ point of view of well-being, institutional support, and campus experiences, while providing their input on how both institutions can better support well-being in learning environments.

We welcome all UBC and SFU faculty, educators and staff to join us on Thursday, May 7, 2020, from 8:00am to 4:30pm at SFU Harbour Centre. We look forward to learning with you.

Please email us at wellbeing.learning@ubc.ca should you have any questions regarding this event.
