This report summarises the findings of the EUA Learning & Teaching Thematic Peer Group "Needs and wellbeing of students and staff", which was active throughout 2022.
It outlines aspects of a higher education institution’s activities which the group identified as having the most influence on individual wellbeing. The group conducted student and staff surveys at group member institutions to enquire about these aspects, and whether they were positively or negatively affected by digital learning and teaching. In addition, the group organised a student focus group to obtain further insights into student views on wellbeing and the support institutions can provide. The results of these activities are summarised in the report, which concludes by outlining challenges, key considerations and recommendations, which institutions may find helpful for ensuring targeted and effective support for their students and staff.
The group was organised in the context of the “Supporting European universities in their strategic approaches to digital learning” (DIGI-HE) project and EUA’s Learning & Teaching activities.
The DIGI-HE project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. This publication reflects the views only of the authors, and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein.
