Digital Wellness: A Workshop for Rowan Faculty
Faculty: Andrea Baer, Public Services Librarian

- Identify your own digital wellness priorities and related actions you can take to better support your digital wellness.
Over the past several years, almost all of us have become highly reliant on digital technologies and platforms to complete everyday tasks and to meet many of our most basic social, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs. At the same time that digital technologies help us connect with others and to engage in meaningful activities, digital platforms can also be sources of stress that divide our attention, negatively affect our physical health, and pose privacy concerns.
In this interactive workshop for Rowan faculty, we will reflect on the positive and negative effects that our relationships to digital technologies have on us as individuals and as communities. We will consider recent research on this topic, as well as everyday examples of people's relationships to technology and digital wellness. Throughout the session, we will consider our digital wellness priorities and related actions we can take to better support digital wellness, first in ourselves, and secondly in the communities and the classrooms in which we live and interact.
