Improving student learning through well-being
Dr Belinda Barton has recognised for many years the importance of well-being to students’ learning and academic outcomes, as well as their positive social and emotional development. As head of The Children's Hospital Education Research Institute (CHERI), Dr Barton has seen how family and school environments can have a significant impact upon the well-being of children and young people. There are many ways to enhance well-being.
Each year, CHERI hosts a conference showcasing the latest in learning and neurocognitive research aimed at improving the lives of young people, particularly those with ongoing or long-term health issues such as neurofibromatosis and cancer survivorship. The theme for the 2017 conference is "Improving student learning through well-being".
Taking place on 25th and 26th May 2017, this conference is a not to be missed event for educators, school counsellors, psychologists, allied health professionals and all those in whose care rests the well-being of every child.
