Is your student resilient?
Resilience is not something we are born with — it is developed over time through self-management skills and reflection. Resilience is defined as:
the ability to overcome adversity
the ability to recover quickly from challenges
the ability to withstand stress and to adapt and learn from problems
In order to develop these abilities, we need to encounter problems first-hand. University experiences such as poor grades, missed deadlines or conflicts with group projects are opportunities for students to develop their own problem-solving styles.
How you can help your student to learn from problems and to bounce back from challenges.
