This university-level TDG project aims at measuring the state of students’ well-being to enhance their level of well-being and their ability at meeting challenges in their current personal and study life as well as in their future professional life. This will be achieved by creating a well-being e-portfolio in the Sway system for students selected from three collaborative Positive and Values Education (PAVE) courses across three faculties using an integrated well-being model.

The project is designed using a mixed-method approach. Ideally, there will be three groups drawn from each PAVE course. Different kinds of qualitative and quantitative data will be collected. The qualitative data will consist of pre- and post-interviews and e-portfolios. Approximately 24 students (8*3) in the three courses will be randomly selected for two rounds of individual interviews. The e-portfolios of all students in the three groups will be analyzed. The quantitative data is comprised of pre- and post-survey questionnaires on well-being and course grades will be collected from all students in the three groups for analysis. These two kinds of data will be integrated and enhance each other in terms of student well-being. Moreover, all lecturers who taught these three groups will be invited for individual interviews for the effectiveness of use of the well-being e-portfolio.
