Guest Editorial: Educator Wellbeing in Higher Education

Abstract

Research has repeatedly shown that quality of instruction and positive student–faculty interaction are significant contributors to student success and wellbeing in higher education. However, as additional workload expectations and resource constraints continue to impact higher education globally, there are growing concerns about stress, workload, burnout and intention to leave academia which have significant implications for the wellbeing of both students and educators. This special issue of Student Success explores the vital contribution of educator wellbeing to student success, and approaches to improving it.
