  • Physical activity fixes the corona-induced wellbeing deficiency

    Published:

    Distance learning, forced by corona constraints, easily exposes the student to difficulties in concentration, body aches and loneliness. Even before the corona, students sat for nearly 11 hours a day.

  • Markus Halonen: Spreading information is an important part of promoting physical activity

    Published:

    Making higher education culture more physically active is a complex goal to achieve, and in order to reach it, we should approach the target group from many different angles. It is, of course, important to remind people about the benefits of exercise and the disadvantages of physical inactivity, but we also need more detailed information when we want to transfer new learning into practice in increasing physical activity. In August 2020, the project Tikissä työelämään organised a series of three webinars to examine both the benefits of physical activity and also possible disadvantages from the point of view of e.g. brain health and the new physical activity recommendations.

  • Tuire Ranta-Meyer: The playing human has the courage to move in the higher education

    Published:

    In this blog post, I discuss whether universities of applied sciences can have imaginative leaders and “masters of madness”, as in Little’s office. Could a creative idea that seems a little crazy today be a driving force for the development of tomorrow? Are there any aspects of higher education sports where students do not need to be full of athletic power in order to exercise on their own terms, take part in and enjoy physical activity one step – or, say, one wrist rotation at a time?

  • #getoffyourarse, #perseetpenkistä and #studentsonthemoveNOW!

    Published:

    The average student sits for approximately 11 hours per day. These extreme numbers are influenced by the higher education environment which makes students passive, forcing them to sit in lecture after lecture without refreshing breaks that are important for their health. Here at the Finnish Student Sports Federation, we demand that the Studies on the Move programme should include the entire higher education sector in the coming government term.
