Conference and workshops
AISA 2022 Wellbeing & Bouncebackability Event
Tuesday 8th February 10:00 – 12:30 via Zoom, Free (AISA members only)
It’s clear listening to colleagues at AISA regional events that for many International Student Advisers, 2021 was even more difficult than 2020. As the pandemic has gone on, with borders opening and closing and immigration and institutional goalposts constantly moving, it’s been an incredibly tough year for international students and all of us on the front lines working tirelessly to provide them with clarity and support in an uncertain world. We know this has taken a huge toll on advisers.
At AISA we would like to explore strategies that our members can employ to counteract these issues in 2022, and beyond.
Our event will open with a session from Christina Peters (University of Hertfordshire) exploring strategies and practical methods we, as advisers, can put in place to look after our own wellbeing. Suzanne Aburagheb (University of Exeter) will then look at what our institutions can do to help prioritise the wellbeing of their advisers. These sessions will then be followed by a Q & A where attendees can ask questions to Christina and Suzanne or share their own strategies and experiences.
After a short break, in the second half of the event, The Art of Brilliance will provide us with an hour long session on ‘Bouncebackability’ cultivating personal skills and resources to cope with stress and adversity and embrace challenges. Colleagues from UKCISA will also give an update on their Peer Support Scheme which is due to be piloted.
It would be great to see as many of our members as possible attend the event.
Attendance at the event is FREE!
