The mental health of students in higher education is increasingly of concern to specialist tutors. This online CPD course offers a brief outline of some of the ways that poor mental health affects learning and suggests how developing mindfulness practice with your students can build their resilience. Mindfulness helps students with strategies to overcome adversity and develop perseverance; it builds self-knowledge and self-esteem to help towards a proactive attitude that learns. You will be invited to take part in mindfulness exercises and consider a range of mindfulness and specialist study support strategies that will help you help your students.
This course is presented by Karisa Krcmar. Karisa is QA Officer for ADSHE and headed up a team of specialist tutors at Loughborough University. She developed mindfulness for study workshops with a colleague and they later produced a book Mindfulness for Study based on their programme. Karisa has since edited 2 more books: The Inclusivity Gap about inclusive learning and teaching in higher education and Helping Penguins to Swim which highlights a range of innovative practice already happening in HE to help build resilience and good mental health among students.
This course counts as 1-hour of ADSHE Accredited CPD.
