Building Student Resilience

Two workshops were run at QMU on 30 August by Abby Shovlin (Wellbeing Coach, and also an academic developer at the University of Edinburgh). The first workshop focused on learning and teaching approaches which help students build resilience and well-being, and the second took the perspective of professional services support.

To find out more, see Abby’s slides in the CAP Hub resource site (Staff will find this under their course list)
