Abstract: This is a three-module course for educators titled “Student mental health and virtual teaching strategies”. This online training is intended for post-secondary educators who are teaching in a virtual environment. Many students are struggling with mental health difficulties (MHCC, 2020) and experience barriers to learning. It is imperative that educators understand the mental health struggles students may experience so they can develop and apply effective teaching strategies and accommodations to support students’ learning journeys. In this three-module course, educators will learn about various mental health problems and how they impact learning and performance, especially within virtual learning spaces. Evidence-based teaching strategies and accommodations are presented as they relate to virtual learning and teaching. This training will include self-assessment tools for educators so they can determine their level of mental health literacy, digital wellness literacy and openness to mental health accommodations and supports.
