Are you looking for ways to enhance your students’ wellbeing and success? Would you like to support them to achieve their best whilst on fieldwork? Research has shown that resilience can diminish psychological stress, help with managing pressures and improve academic results.

Hosted by Dr Margo Brewer, project lead, this webinar will present the outcomes from a national Australian Technology Network (ATN) funded project focused on enhancing academics capacity to embed resilience into the curriculum.

Led by Curtin University, in conjunction with Queensland University of Technology and the University of South Australia, the project team – drawing on literature in the field – has created an operational definition and conceptualisation of resilience for higher education.

The webinar will:

  • Provide a definition of resilience for higher education
  • Explain the critical role of resilience within higher education
  • Give you strategies to enhance student resilience at the intrapersonal, inter personal and university level.

Who would benefit?
