From a pilot cohort of 16 to a community of over 200 students at Ryerson.
From two instructors to a national Community of Practise of over 50 educators.
From feedback forms to three formal research projects.

What is Thriving in Action (TiA)? Borne from a belief in learnability, practised from a focus on what’s ‘right’ with people, taught from a stance of benevolence, revolving around a priority of belongingness, TiA is helping to address the hunger shared by educators across Canada as to help bolster student resilience. A 10-session, non-credit intervention for struggling students, TiA entwines essential Positive Psychology skills like optimism, self-compassion, grit, and gratitude with progressive learning strategies, from mindful time management to collaborative group work to more efficient and spacious studying. TiA has also come to serve as an Early Alert intervention, retention program, and post-orientation offering for students in their middle- and later-years.

Webinar participants can expect to learn about our compelling pre- and post-research findings exploring the impacts of Thriving in Action upon students’ agency, our Thriving in Action Training Institutes and growing community, the arts-based mentorship and peer support TiA initiatives, and the Thriving in Action Online project, soon to be launched and shared.

Join us as we share how TiA’s innovative curriculum, care-based pedagogy, and equity focus are helping students bounce back, persist, feel connected, find purpose, and ultimately thrive!

This webinar is hosted by the Centre for Innovation in Campus Mental Health.
