GREENVILLE, Pa.—Students in two of the classes taught by Associate Professor of Psychology Kristel Gallagher, Ph.D.,(in the online part of the semester) completed weekly “Well-Being Breathers” at home—activities designed to increase their social and emotional well-being while away from campus.
The students did exercises that included:
For their final week, Gallagher had them think of how they would answer the question “How did I survive and THRIVE the online semester?” using only one word. The students then took a photo of themselves displaying that word, and Gallagher created class collages of their responses.
“I thought they turned out really well and will be a nice keepsake for the students from this semester,” Gallagher said.
