Results of a teaching innovation project on emotion regulation for UPF students in the 2022-23 academic year
During the 2022-23 academic year, TIDE led a teaching innovation project (funded by PlaCliK: E2022014338) that involved integrating the teaching and practice of emotion regulation (mindfulness, cognitive reappraisal) into classes related to preparing for and completing public speaking tasks. For the project, digital resources from European projects (Spotlighters, RemixED) were adapted by the project coordinator, Marc Beardsley, for use in courses at DTIC. In total, 8 different UPF instructors piloted the materials with their students and reported positively on their experiences.
The following materials are available as a result of the project:
A case study report that documents the efforts made in the project.
A reusable workshop (120 min) for introducing the Science of Stress to teachers: NearPod Lesson
The project also used TIDE’s ClassMood App which includes videos for running brief self-regulatory activities in class (e.g., prior to final presentations or tests to help students reach a calmer state).

Work is currently underway in the TIDE research group to turn this initiative into a European project in which the materials are to be improved and integrated into university courses to better support student social and emotional development.
