The impact of the pandemic on the mental health of students and teachers
Stockholm, October 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) –
What impact will distance learning have on education?
Ouriginal, Europe’s leading provider of solutions for the detection and prevention of plagiarism, is organizing an online panel discussion on the effects of the pandemic on the mental health of students and teachers on October 20, 2021 in cooperation with the Center for Academic Integrity in Dubai. The online webcast will take place in conjunction with Celebrating Academic Integrity Week 2021.
The mental health impact of the pandemic on learners and teachers is a serious problem in today’s educational landscape, according to education experts at Ouriginal. From heightened stress and insecurity to decreased self-confidence and increasing loneliness, “the extended length of distance learning triggered by the pandemic has taken a visible toll on both faculty and students,” said Andreas Ohlson, CEO of Ouriginal.
In the past year, according to the CEO, the digital world and the associated virtual meetings have become more important than real social interactions. As a result, social alienation has also led to an increase in social anxiety: More and more people find it difficult to be in the same room with others for long periods of time, while others find it difficult to be alone with themselves.
Here the education expert asks the following questions: How can we find ourselves as teachers and learners in this environment? How can teachers support their students on their way to independent and self-confident learning without ignoring the psychological side?
To answer these and many other questions, the education expert invites you to a comprehensive and free webcast.
