Teacher Wellbeing: The Foundation of Good PracticesSept. 21, 2023
A teacher’s well-being is essential for the success of both educators and students. It is built upon a foundation of physical and mental health, work-life balance, and professional development. Implementing good practices to promote teacher wellbeing not only benefits teachers themselves but also enriches the overall educational experience for students and contributes to a healthier and more sustainable education system. Promoting teachers' happiness, satisfaction, joy, engagement, relations, and pleasure contributes to fostering a positive school/institutional culture as they are an integral part of it. Dr. Sarah Mercer is currently leading the Department of English Language Teaching, University of Graz, Australia. British Linguistic Dr. Mercer’s research contributions in the sphere of linguistics have likely had a significant impact on the field, particularly in the understanding of language acquisition and processing from a dynamic systems perspective. Author of more than five books in the field of linguistics, psychology, self-concept and SLA, Mercer contributed to the field of teacher wellbeing with more than ten research paper publications within a couple of years and many presentations in national and international conferences. Dr. Sarah Mercer, one of the foremost scholars in the field of teacher wellbeing, is here this week to enlighten us with her experience, expertise, and insights on the topic of Teacher Wellbeing: The Foundation of Good Practice.
