A national symposium on educator and student well-being has shifted the conversation from ‘fixing symptoms’ to transforming entire school cultures.
This multimedia follow-up report from the EdCan Network’s Educator Well-Being: A Key to Student Success Symposium, which took place last October in Toronto, includes presentation recaps and videos of the latest research and good practices for ensuring the well-being of students, teachers, principals, and education leaders.
Two days of engaging keynotes, panel discussions and workshops inspired attendees to answer the following questions:
- What is well-being?
- What does student success look like?
- And how can school districts lead systemic change to meet unique learner needs?
