Junior Faculty Conversations On Teaching: Student Well-Being
Junior faculty are often the first to know when a student is struggling personally, and faculty can struggle themselves in figuring out how to support their students while still maintaining their own healthy boundaries. This month’s conversation will focus on the particular well-being challenges we see Boston College students facing and the various approaches faculty have found effective in supporting them.
The Junior Faculty Conversations on Teaching are designed to provide faculty in their first years at BC an opportunity to reflect on their teaching in conversation with colleagues from across the university. These informal, lunchtime discussions are held throughout the academic year and focus on a different broad topic or question each month. Faculty are welcome to attend as few or as many of the lunches as they would like. The Spring 2019 sessions will occur on February 19, March 13, and April 1.
