Cal Poly Electrical Engineering Professor Andrew Danowitz is part of a team offering a free ASEE workshop “Promoting Mental Health and Wellness in Undergraduate Engineers.” The live Zoom workshop is Friday, Feb. 26 at 11 am. This is a great opportunity to learn from a colleague about this important and timely issue. Register here.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, higher education was facing a “mental health crisis.” The rapid onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced countless additional stressors, and faculty concern over student well-being has increased. In this workshop, we will share the current state of research on mental health in undergraduate engineering students, including ongoing research to understand the impact of COVID-19 on student well-being.
By the end of this workshop, participants should be able to:
- Define the current state of research in engineering student mental health
- Recognize the impact of online learning on student mental health
- Develop and discuss practices for supporting student well-being
- Understanding research based practices for supporting student mental health
