From Burnout to Balance: Practical Strategies for Stress Relief in the Classroom

Description

Concept by Veerle Ponnet

Teachers and students often face important levels of stress and burnout. This negatively affects the learning environment and the overall well-being of all people involved. This issue is so important that the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development explicitly introduced goals related to health and well-being in school education.

This course will provide teachers with the tools and strategies to reduce stress in the classroom and promote the health and well-being of students and themselves.

Participants will learn about the causes and effects of stress on students and teachers, as well as how to incorporate the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) related to health and well-being in the teaching practice.

Participants will also develop practical strategies for stress management – such as mindfulness, self-care, and positive thinking -, and learn how to create a positive and supportive classroom environment that promotes the health and well-being of students and teachers.

By the end of the course, participants will have a better understanding of how to create a stress-free classroom environment and be able to implement practical strategies for stress management to reduce stress in their classrooms and schools.
