Thriving Beyond Campuses: The impact of mental bandwidth depletion on student mental health and well-being
Vancouver Campus | 4:00pm–4:00pm
The impact of mental bandwidth depletion on student mental health and well-being
Keynote speaker: Cia Verschelden
For many of our students, the cognitive resources for learning are being diminished by the negative effects of poverty, as well as discrimination and hostility against groups marginalized on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, and other aspects. Due to the pandemic and social unrest, uncertainty — which is at the core of all bandwidth depletion — is significantly affecting our students’ capacity to learn and our own capacity to do our work and maintain well-being.
And don't forget to sign up for the follow-up discussion on November 12th.

BC Health Promotion and Education, SFU Health Promotion, and BCCampus are partnering to host Thriving Beyond Campuses: Wellbeing in Learning Environments, a dialogue series connecting BC post-secondary schools. This province wide online dialogue series is being held in lieu of the Building Connections: UBC & SFU Wellbeing in Learning Environments Symposium that was cancelled due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
Thriving Beyond Campuses is a dialogue series for faculty, educators, and staff to connect on the topic of how well-being relates to teaching practices and learning environments. Please see the 2020 events below. The events for 2021 will be announced later this fall; please subscribe to the BCCampus newsletter to receive updates on these eventsView Map
