Digital Wellbeing for Higher Education Lectures (DWEL) is an Erasmus+ project aiming to support the digital capabilities of the higher education sector with a specific focus on the skills of our teaching staff.
In particular the project aims to strengthen educators’ own digital competence, but also to boost the capacity of HEIs to manage the digital transition in a way that combines high quality teaching with the wellbeing of those involved.
The objective of Digital Wellbeing for Higher Education Lecturers -project is to design, develop and implement a new approach to train HEI lecturers and managers in digital wellbeing. The project produces new resources that enable the integration of policy and practice to support digital wellbeing for lecturers and encourage proactive behaviour at personal level. The resources are tested ja refined in collaboration with managers, department heads and lecturers.
Our goals are:
- To raise awareness of the importance of achieving a balance between digital teaching and the wellbeing of lecturers who have been rapidly exposed to risks to their physical and psychological health that they have not had to deal with in the past.
- To raise the knowledge, skills and practical capacity of managers and leaders of HE institutions develop and introduce plans and policies which create a conducive environment for the digital wellbeing of their lecturers.
- To provide HE lecturers with the knowledge and skills to be proactive in safeguarding their own digital wellbeing in order to maintain high quality teaching performance.
