Just in time for final exams, the LinkedIn Learning Club @ McMaster has launched a campaign empowering students to prioritize their health and wellness.
During December, McMaster University students using their free LinkedIn Learning account will have access to a playlist of short video courses centred around supporting personal well-being.
This month’s offerings were selected by Tanvir Singh, a third-year computer science student and LinkedIn Learning ambassador.
“December can be a challenging month for students between juggling exams, project deadlines, presentations, and theses submissions,” said Singh. “We chose to focus on health and wellness for this month’s campaign to help students reduce their stress and anxiety, boost their physical fitness, and take care of their mental health.”
Topics within the collection range from practicing mindfulness and managing symptoms of stress, to prioritizing well-being and finding time for fitness.
Jeannie An, LinkedIn Learning campus coordinator and Ron Joyce Centre research services librarian, says she hopes students will take advantage of this free resource.
“This campaign is a helpful reminder for students to take a short break from their academic studies to take extra good care of their personal needs,” said An.
To access this month’s LinkedIn Learning Club content, McMaster students can click the LinkedIn Learning Club banner on their LinkedIn Learning homepage or search for it by title in the search bar. Alternately, users can find the content at this LinkedIn Learning link.
McMaster staff and faculty are reminded they also have free, unlimited access to LinkedIn Learning for personal, professional, and instructional purposes. To learn more about LinkedIn Learning, visit the McMaster website for LinkedIn Learning
