Its Role in Enhancing Academic and Personal Wellbeing in an Age of Change and Disruption
Keynote Presentation: Andrew Martin

In the face of massive disruptions caused by COVID-19, we are advised we need to adapt to a “new normal”. Indeed, how individuals adapt to change and disruption has been identified as a significant challenge dating back to Lao Tzu and the Buddha. This presentation explores “adaptability”. Adaptability refers to individuals’ capacity to regulate their thoughts, behaviors, and emotions to successfully navigate change, uncertainty, novelty, and disruption. This presentation summarizes recent international research exploring the role of adaptability in students' academic outcomes, teachers’ workplace satisfaction, and individuals' personal wellbeing. It concludes by identifying practices that may enhance adaptability and assist individuals to successfully navigate the inevitable change and disruption that are a reality of the world ahead.
