August 25, 2016 | New Research Released by Colleagues at Simon Fraser University: "Understanding Students’ Experiences of Well-Being in Learning Environments"

BTtoP is proud to share that along with research partner Dr. David Zandvliet, the Simon Fraser University Health Promotion team "has conducted a participatory action research project to explore how learning environments can enhance student well-being, in addition to student satisfaction with learning," funded through their BTtoP grant. 

Their research article, titled "Understanding Students’ Experiences of Well-Being in Learning Environments," asserts that while many institutions of higher education now recognize that their space is one suited to encouraging student flourishing, "limited research has explored students’ own perceptions of well-being in learning environments." In order to address this issue, the team of researchers from SFU developed a survey to gather quantitative data exploring the way learning environment factors relate to student well-being.
