Please jot any thoughts here as you wish!
Yesterday I gave a talk “Professional Wellbeing for Professional Development”
That is a very interesting topic Beatrix
Highly relevant; just the other side of the coin
Is well being related to residence?
Wellbeing is more connected to prevention - resilience has a little negative connotation; wellbeing is more ‘sunny’
But this is very simplified
interesting….let’s address this topic in discussion??
Yes, it is very interesting. Most cartoons and videos joke about what people think happens in a class and what it is really like.
Good point, Hind
Support networks are very important and I think all these associations and groups that have emerged during lockdown have helped a lot!
Cartoons “grab” the critical issues very well. Another good idea for a presentation ;-)
Great points, Hind. Thanks!
There is very little institutional support (unfortunately)
Wow! You are great Liz! You are right! that is a great topic! :)
Good point Beatrix! In addition to lack of institutional support, some teachers don't really take it seriously.
Hello Aymen :)
Good to see you here, Aymen! Thank you for joining us!
Happy to be here
Despite the relatively favorable context, stress, burnout and associated issues are still evident in some cases as it is not just about the moneyChanging conditions can affect one’s ability to be resilientQatar-based TESOL teachers see themselves as generally resilientTertiary TESOL teachers appear to feel less supported and also appear less likely to seek it outResilience training may be difficult in environments where people are unreceptive to itHowever, it is dangerous to assume that it is not needed in the research context
I'm wondering if comparing private school teachers to state school teachers would result in different findings
Bobbi was here to tell me that dinner is ready and it's 9 pm and time to go, so I will leave you now
