Introduction​

Education systems worldwide have accepted the fact that a clear, positive correlation exists between students' wellbeing and the quality of their learning, satisfaction, and academic achievements. In parallel, a positive correlation has been found between the wellbeing of educators in educational institutions and the quality of their teaching and their feeling of professional satisfaction.
The theoretical and practical aspects associated with the bolstering and enhancement of the wellbeing of all partners in the educational institutions will be presented during this online seminar.
The seminar is a collaborative initiative of The MOFET Institute and the Research and Development group (RDC) in Teacher Psychologies of the Association for Teacher Education in Europe (ATEE). ​​
