Supporting the Well-Being of University Students

TMC is thrilled to announce the inaugural Applied Self-Regulation Knowledge (ASK) Conference this May 11th and 12th, 2023 at Lakehead University’s Orillia campus.

Supporting the Well-Being of University Students is a 2 day conference hosted by esteemed self-regulation thinker, educator, and ASK Director of Research, Dr. Sonia Mastrangelo.  The event brings together students, researchers, faculty and community leaders to engage in presentations and vital conversations in support of university students.

While the COVID pandemic is shrinking in our rear view mirror we are still spinning in this COVID endemic world, and the changes and losses of the past three years are ever present.  University students have spent a significant portion of their post-secondary learning in the flickering landscape of screens as instructors worked to inspire new thinking and collaboration amongst students they sometimes couldn’t even see.

Now that universities are open again, the whole community faces another dizzying pivot.  How do we all thrive when everything has changed yet again?

This conference considers how we can support students to regain the balance of well-being and learning when we are all dysregulated from three years of constant change.

Supporting the Well-Being of University Students brings together a multi-disciplinary team of scholars, researchers, and practitioners who will be disseminating their work from the fields of neuroscience, psychology, education, health, and social work all in support of student well-being.    

Conference Topics: 

  • Ongoing impact of COVID disruptions on focus, learning, and mental health
  • Innovations in research processes in a COVID affected world
  • Accessibility: advocating for student needs and supporting student empowerment 
  • Evolving student mental health needs
  • How can Self-Reg support collaborations and connections
