THE MINDFUL EDUCATOR:
SCHOOL LEADER PERFORMANCE AND WELLBEING
QELi is delighted to partner with LOUPE, Andrew Jones and Michael Hines to offer you The Mindful Educator – School Leader Performance and Wellbeing Webinar Series.
Educators across Australia are faced with highly complex challenges, contributing to well-documented mental health and wellbeing issues. In this webinar series, school leaders will be provided with the knowledge, professional support and practical strategies to drive enhancement in school culture and climate, including both individual and collective wellbeing.
Traditional teacher wellbeing interventions are designed to address problems once they’ve occurred and often lack the contextual relevance to reliably impact practice. This three part professional learning series draws upon many years of collective research and practice working with schools and educators in Australia and right across the world. Loupe specialises in supporting educators to collectively understand and ideate interventions aligned with school strategic improvement initiatives – which empower learning leaders to drive the enhancement of team wellbeing and performance.
Through the application of mindfulness theory, school improvement research, and leveraging systems thinking approaches, this wellbeing webinar series will support participants to:
- Build capacity and efﬁcacy of their schools’ professional workforce
- Inﬂuence the systemic school-based factors that impact people’s wellbeing
- Drive a more positive culture for leading, teaching and learning
