Developed by the Centre for Innovation in Campus Mental Health (CICMH), this toolkit aims to help faculty and teaching staff take steps within the classroom in a collective effort to support student mental health.
The Mental Health and the Learning Environment Toolkit provides recommendations to provide support for faculty working to embed mental well-being into everyday practice.
Creating positive classrooms, lecture halls and research labs where students feel supported and connected helps to promote and enhance learning outcomes and equip them for success. The University of British Columbia has developed a teaching + learning resources website, where faculty members can find tools to help support student wellbeing in learning environments.
Studies have indicated that good mental health and wellbeing enhances a student’s ability to learn. Evidence also shows that different teaching practices affect student learning outcomes. The “Identifying the influence of teaching practices on undergraduate students’ mental health and wellbeing” project explored which teaching practices best support student wellbeing and effective student learning.
These guidelines outline best practices for graduate supervision at the University of Toronto and assist all participants in the supervisory process to have a clear understanding of responsibilities and expectations in order to optimize the graduate experience and prevent or reduce potential problems or conflicts.
