Free On-Demand ASCD Archived Webinar with Chase Mielke

Duration:  58 minutes

As an educator, you often burn at both ends—not only eroding your own well-being but diminishing your ability to engage students in the classroom. You can also often find yourself in challenging contexts that are beyond your control. Rather than become a complacent curmudgeon, you can take control of your own actions, using the science of well-being to learn to love teaching again.

In this webinar, Chase Mielke, author of the new book The Burnout Cure: Learning to Love Teaching Again, will highlight research-based, teacher-tested methods that helped him fight through burnout and learn to love teaching again. You will explore practical strategies for increasing your own well-being (or that of educators you work with), reducing burnout, and improving learning in the classroom. To start, Mielke will introduce a simple Model for Thriving that empowers you take your well-being into your own hands. Then, you’ll explore multiple themes for social-emotional thriving:

  • Mindfulness
  • Goodness Curation
  • Forgiveness
  • Gratitude
  • Optimism
  • Altruism
  • Goal-Striving
  • Empathy
  • Job Crafting

Each theme will explore the peer-reviewed science of the concept along with specific strategies for educators. You will learn methods to ensure not only your own thriving, but also the social-emotional well-being of your students.
