Sessions

1. Why teacher wellbeing?

1 hour

I don’t need to tell you that teaching is stressful. From admin to parents, meetings and students who lack motivation, you are not alone. Together we unpack the research on teacher stress and the impact this is having on your body and brain. We define wellbeing though a positive psychology lens and reflect on the factors that have both a positive and negative impact on our wellbeing.

2. Let it go with mindfulness

1 hour

Now that we have identified the wellbeing continuum from stress to flourishing, we take a moment to understanding and practice mindfulness. We explore current evidence based programs that exist to develop mindfulness and the research neuroscience that supports this.

3. The role of emotions at work

1 hour

Teaching is an emotional vocation but do we really understand the role our emotions play at work? Here we learn how positive emotions can broaden our perspective and build resilience through the work of Barbara Fredrickson. We also explore strategies by Salovey and Mayer in the field of emotional intelligence to better manage emotions on a daily basis

4. Tracking the good stuff

1 hour

As teachers we are always busy, however how often do we stop to celebrate all we have achieved? Here we do an audit of your busyness to track the good stuff as a way to reflect on where you are spending your time and energy.

5. Spotting strengths

1 hour

We are well aware of the unique individual strengths of our students as we plan ways to help them embrace these gifts, yet what are your strengths or those of your colleagues? Here we identify our top 5 character strengths that form the foundation of positive psychology. By knowing these strengths and planning ways to use them, we support ourselves in moving towards greater job satisfaction and wellbeing.

6. Building your wellbeing plan

1 hour

In this final session, we review the course and map our learnings to Martin Seligman’s PERMA model. This world recognised framework forms the beginning of your evidence-based teacher wellbeing plan where you leave with either your own personal wellbeing plan, or a plan for your whole school. Reference is also made to the NSW DEC Wellbeing Framework.

Outstanding This was an outstanding course. It shows how important teacher wellbeing is and how to cultivate it. The course is easily applicable to our work as teachers rather than just being theory based. The presentation of this course is engaging and I can’t wait to share the knowledge I have gained from this course. - Annelise Dixon -

This course was excellent. It provided me with more in depth information about aspects of well being I was already aware of. It provided me with information and encouraged me to consider my own thoughts.
