Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

This resource begins with two short video presentations, one highlighting an MTU Crawford website resource ( developed with a focus on wellness, the other highlighting an innovative approach to learning that was adapted at MTU Crawford during the pandemic.
The main presentation is by Rhonda Schaller (Fulbright Specialist in contemplative and wellbeing pedagogy) who outlines an understanding of wellness within teaching and learning, and explores how this approach has been implemented at Pratt Institute. Recent times have brought our awareness of wellbeing into sharp focus. We acknowledge its importance, but what is it exactly and how can we practically support it within teaching and learning? This presentation begins to consider these questions and look at how existing models can be incorporated into an Irish context.
