Digital Wellbeing


No longer just the domain of the workplace, technology is part of our everyday lives at home and in wider society. This course shows learners where they may need to think about their use and interactions with digital technology for our health and wellbeing and introduces strategies for dealing with any negative effects for ourselves and others.  

Learning objectives
  • Recognise digital technology use within and out with the workplace 
  • Understand the pros and cons of digital technology in a modern world 
  • Identify risks for ourselves and others of being “always on” 
  • Know the impact of digital technology on mental health
  • Learn about the impact of digital technology on physical health (including sleep, addictive habits and the stress response) 
  • Measure our own screen time and develop strategies to minimise negative interactions 
Delivery method 

Can be delivered face to face, online or blended either in person or virtually e.g.  Teams/Zoom.
