Wellbeing in teaching

Recently the higher education field and its teaching have been shaken by many changes. It makes us ask what is high quality teaching nowadays and how is it achieved? How can the wellbeing of the teachers and the students be taken into account at the same time? Pedagogical wellbeing entails both teaher and student perspective. Our aim is to support pedagogical wellbeing in all Aalto community.
