Network to Support Student Resilience,
Success and Well-being
Interested in encouraging student success and resilience?
You are invited to join the community of practice exploring student resilience and success in post-secondary and higher education via an e-communication-list.
You will want to subscribe to this e-list if you are interested in sharing and exploring strategies that enhance the awareness and use of knowledge and skills related to an essential graduate capability for the successful contemporary graduate--RESILIENCE.
In this community of practice we are exploring the key ingredients that influence resilience and success whilst at university as well as in life beyond the academic community.
Some key concepts include psychological literacy and psychological flexibility.
There is gathering evidence relevant to these concepts that are filtering into the well-being and mental health literature, and much of the research has great potential for application within university settings.
This list establishes a communication tool for an e-community of practice of professionals interested in this topic.
You are encouraged to share resources, research articles, mobile device applications, websites, ideas and strategies that have the potential to impact on resilience and success of students in higher education and post-secondary education.
To access the email-based interface for users or get help using this e-list, send an email with just the word `help' as subject or in the body to firstname.lastname@example.org
