Ensuring Wellbeing For All When Working and Learning Remotely

This presentation focuses on the challenges faced when school leaders are tasked with ensuring the wellbeing of students, staff and community members during periods of campus closure or online learning.

Quite often in international schools we find a significant portion of our workforce, and even our families, are far from home, and can easily become disconnected from their family, friends and support structures, especially during a crisis. By leveraging technology and other approaches, how can we:
- ensure our staff remain connected and engaged, both socially, emotionally and professionally
- examine student wellbeing challenges when learning and working from home
- build and strengthen a sense of community when learning and working from home (or online)
- invest in professional development opportunities that target what staff need, when they need it.

We examine the above challenges through a lens of the latest research, best practise and case study examples.
