About the session

This workshop will be focused on a proactive approach to academic wellbeing. There is a vast volume of research indicating this is a problem for academic staff, however we tend to have a reactive approach to this (waiting until burnout or overwhelm to do something about it). So, this highly interactive session incorporating active learning and action-based strategies that can be utilised proactively in this space to improve the mental and physical wellbeing of academics.
