Attend an SLC

We began hosting Summer Learning Collaboratives (SLCs) in 2017, primarily for partner institutions who had participated in a Wellbeing Assessment survey administration.

Summer Learning Collaborative 2018

The SLCs are a two-day opportunity for you and your team 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
“Thank you all so much for a productive and worthwhile conference.” Sue Wasiolek, Duke University, 2018 SLC Attendee

To learn more about the type of content covered at the SLCs, please see the overview from our Summer 2018 SLC.

In 2019, we hope to host a small conference that combines our usual SLC programming with the opportunity for partner schools to share their progress and practices. We anticipate an event date in early June. Stay tuned for further details!
