Arden academic contributes to Business Impact Magazine

Arden University’s Anthony Thompson has recently authored a piece with Business Impact, the magazine of The Business Graduates Association (BGA), titled ‘Protecting the digital wellbeing of business school students’. 

In the piece, available to read in full here, Anthony, the Programme Leader for Postgraduate Psychology at Arden, considers potential solutions while exploring potential ways to engage students in an increasingly online environment. 

Anthony argues that, while new ways of learning are thriving, providing incredible resources to students, ‘the line between being switched “on” or “off” can be distorted.’

He also discusses the decline in student mental health, and examines the potential technological solutions that can promote personal wellbeing. 

‘To see real change, localised solutions that can accommodate the resources, opportunities, and unique student demographics of each Business School may be required. Co-creating digital wellbeing tools with students, rather than for students, can allow organisations to tap into a breadth of knowledge, experiences, and ideas. This will make the content more relevant and highlight problems and solutions that may not previously have even been on the School’s radar.’
