PowerED™ and Digital Wellness Institute partner with McGill University to offer online digital wellness micro-course
PowerED™ by Athabasca University (AU) and the Digital Wellness Institute are proud to announce a partnership with McGill University.
The McGill School of Continuing Studies will offer Digital Wellness 101: Optimizing Your Time and Energy, a self-directed online micro-course that introduces participants to the importance of digital wellness.
The extended effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, remote work, and excessive daily interaction with technology devices has further complicated our pursuit of physical, mental, and social well-being. Although digital technology enables us to be better connected than ever before, it can also result in us being simultaneously plugged-in and tuned-out from the world around us.
Digital Wellness 101 introduces the importance of balance and will provide learners with a roadmap to reclaiming their relationship with technology.
This micro-course features insights from global experts in this field, including internationally renowned speaker and leading expert in digital wellness Nina Hersher, CEO of the Digital Wellness Institute (DWI), and Amy Blankson, CEO of Fearless Positivity and co-founder of DWI.

“With the increasing prevalence of hybrid work, digital wellness is no longer a luxury; it has become a business and lifestyle necessity,” said Hersher.
“Individuals urgently need resources and support now. In partnership with PowerED™ by Athabasca University, a global provider in online education, we created this micro-course to provide a framework for assessing and addressing digital wellness through tangible skills and micro-behavioral changes. We are delighted that the McGill School of Continuing Studies will now be offering a version of this micro-course to their students.”
Based on DWI’s Digital Wellness Certificate program, this micro-course will teach learners about the concept of digital wellness, explain the Digital Flourishing® framework, and demonstrate how to assess digital wellness using the Digital Flourishing® Scale.
