Abstract

Numerous studies have examined the relationships between teacher or school connectedness and adolescents’ outcomes. This evidence suggests that teacher connectedness, i.e. meaningful student-teacher relationships, is a powerful asset for young people’s wellbeing. However, this construct has been defined in a variety of ways with few studies examining young people’s views on the meaning and predictors of connectedness.
This poster presents findings from a scoping review conducted as part of the EU funded Teacher Connectedness Project “Wellbeing among European youth: The contribution of student-teacher relationships in the secondary-school population”. This review aimed to map and summarise existing
studies about teacher or school connectedness in secondary school students, including research on the views and experiences of young people.
