We began hosting Summer Learning Collaboratives (SLCs) in 2017 for partner institutions who had participated in a Wellbeing Assessment survey administration.
The SLC is a two-day opportunity for schools participating at the Plus level to grow your evidence-informed wellbeing programming capacities. Founded on the principles of collaborative learning, the SLCs use a mixture of technical training, applied work, and group discussion to help attendees efficiently advance their skills in a creative environment. They are also a space for you to network, share resources, and collaborate to improve wellbeing your campus.
The SLCs provide Wake’s team with an opportunity to learn from participants how the Wellbeing Assessment and the Wellbeing Collaborative can be more helpful for you. We carefully incorporate participant feedback into the assessment, our research efforts, future presentations/publications, and future SLCs.
Goals for the SLCs include:
- Developing a clear understanding of the Wellbeing Assessment and data interpretation
- Learning the core components of evidence-informed program development and applying them to a wellbeing dimension of your choosing and programs from your own campus
- Expanding your tools for engaging stakeholders
- Creating an action plan you can implement on your campus
The brochure below includes further details about the type of content covered that will be covered during the SLCs:
“Thank you all so much for a productive and worthwhile conference.” Sue Wasiolek, Duke University, 2018 SLC Attendee
The SLC also provides the opportunity for partner schools to share their progress and practices. For more detailed information about content from prior years, see the 2019 SLC Schedule.
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 SLC was held virtually this summer and followed a significantly altered schedule accordingly. Since we hope to resume in-person meetings for future SLC’s, we have left the samples from 2019 since they are more representative of our regular format.
