Making Research on Well-being Accessible and Meaningful to Practitioners

How can we make research on wellbeing meaningful and accessible to practitioners? This panel discussion features perspectives from multiple education stakeholders. The session involves two researchers who will share about the findings of their research on well-being, which draws on the principles of positive psychology, and then present some suggestions on how their findings can be potentially utilised in school settings. They will also share about how they support practitioners to make sense of their findings and facilitate the adaptation and application of their research findings at schools.

Providing the practitioner voice during the session is a secondary school principal who has more than three years of experience in implementing well-being programmes in school. He will share about how he utilised research on positive psychology and formed networks with various groups to inform the conceptualisation and implementation of such programmes. He will also share about the challenges of fostering well-being in schools and how he and his team dealt with such challenges.

The discussant, who works closely with teachers to translate insights from research into practical classroom applications, will represent the perspective of curriculum developers and policymakers.
