Facilitated by Ellen Barnett (Trinity), Courtney Crim (Trinity), Laura Allen (Trinity), and Aaron Godlaski (Centre)
The COVID-19 pandemic and abrupt transition to online teaching and learning exacerbated existing stressors in the professoriate. This interactive workshop explored the benefits of time in nature and evidenced-based practices that support mental health and well-being that educators can incorporate in their professional and personal practice. Participants were invited to experience recovery potential for themselves through engagement in practices, e.g., breathing exercises and a brief virtually guided outdoor experience, a process which can also be accomplished indoors. Participants were also encouraged to share their own practices.
