What is the next level of thinking and planning we need to do to help students thrive in post-secondary education? 

Join us for a rich, multi-layered discussion with students and academic leaders about a range of factors influencing student health, wellness and care in post-secondary education.

Facilitated by Jonny Morris, former Senior Director at the Canadian Mental Health Association and leader in the Healthy Minds/Healthy Campuses community, this keynote panel will explore the impact of things like pedagogy, learning design, learning environments, technology, rising costs, and institutional supports on students’ health and wellbeing.

This special keynote session will begin with student voices: we will hear about their own experiences in BC post-secondary institutions. Next, we will invite responses from academic leaders, those in charge of policy and other major decisions that shape the student experience.

Then, the audience will be invited to contribute questions and comments to the conversation. And finally, a summary and closing remarks by Jonny Morris to wrap up this unique discussion.
