Book Group: Improving Learning and Mental Health in the College Classroom by Robert Eaton, Steven V. Hunsaker and Bonnie Moon (Hosted In Person) In-Person

Even before the pandemic, students reported higher rates of anxiety, stress, and depression which hurt their ability to learn and persevere in college. Since the pandemic, many colleges report that they are at a crisis point. At Temple, we now have a Health and Well-being Division to strengthen our response and services in a more holistic manner, and faculty can play an integral role. Through small adjustments in teaching practices, faculty can make a difference without adding to workload or trying to replicate the work of professional counselors. As educators, we can support student well-being and help our students learn by being intentional about our teaching practice and the learning environments we create. To learn more about this important issue and what we can do to support our students, please join colleagues from across the university for this book group.
