Tending to Socio-Emotional Needs & Development in the Classroom
The proposed roundtable seeks to spark a conversation surrounding the role of Management & Organizational Behaviour educators in tending to students’ socio-emotional needs and development in the classroom. Special emphasis will be placed on examining the boundaries associated with such a commitment and pro-social strategies that can be employed as part of such an effort in light of the strong connection between wellbeing and social support and relations (Bradburn, 1969). The conversation is timely as awareness surrounding mental health and wellbeing expands against the backdrop of a plethora of commercialized means seeking to readily facilitate happiness, fulfillment, and wellbeing.
