SeAMK Wellbeing Labs is a workplace-oriented learning environment for students. The environment provides great tools for work, enables networking and genuine customer work already during studies. Assignments from employers are carried out in cooperation with various actors and degree students.
Student work follows the Living Lab operating model. In the learning environment, actors meet each other, and users, applicators, developers and enablers come together in the development.
In the Wellbeing Labs environment, students produce various supportive and preventive wellbeing services under the guidance of professionals. Student work makes extensive use of the tools, equipment, applications and facilities of the development and learning environment. Using various wellbeing technology devices and professional devices in the implementation of commissions improves the student’s technology competence and allows the partner to familiarise themselves with new tools and solutions. Experts of different fields are also available in the environment, if needed.

Student work services include research and measurement services as well as guidance and counselling. Health care students act as service providers.
Individual guidance is provided at the Campus or in another suitable environment. Individual guidance is provided both during clinical practical training and in cooperation during courses. A work instructor or the teacher in charge of the course is involved in all activities.
Individual guidance focuses on preventive wellbeing guidance and supporting wellbeing. Individual guidance is usually carried out by two students. If necessary and possible, the partner is multiprofessional. Visits are always confidential, and the confidentiality obligation is observed in these situations.
We regularly carry out individual guidance in cooperation with Etelä-Pohjanmaan Urheiluakatemia (South Ostrobothnia Sports Academy).
The student work actors guide different groups either to order or as continuous, open groups.
Two to three students are always involved in group guidance, which enables more individual consideration and assistance for different participants. From the perspective of learning, it is also important for students to be able to reflect on activities with their peers and to receive peer feedback during the entire operating cycle. Either the work instructor responsible for the practical training or the teacher in charge of the course is always present in the background.
Students produce different group activities both during courses and practical training. For example, social services students have already organised the Finnish Red Cross’s Kaveritaitoja (Friendship skills) groups for several classes and groups. Read more about this and other cooperation experiences in our database.
At SeAMK, theses are written in close cooperation with employer partners. We have a joint and open thesis exchange in which the commissioning party can promote its topic. For more information on SeAMK’s thesis process, see the link below.

We strive to further develop cooperation during courses. The aim is that students will be able to practise work skills and lessons learned during the course in genuine work situations and operating environments. Course cooperation means a strong, workplace-oriented implementation. Course cooperation is carried out with a wide range of actors in all degree programmes. Various mappings, surveys and functional capacity measurements have been carried out during courses.
Different events have been organised in the scope of course cooperation, such as
• Wellbeing days
• Winter day of applied physical activity
• Experience library
• Group for improving hip and knee health
We accept new ideas and assignments to be organised in the scope of course cooperation. You can send your idea using the assignment form or by contacting the Wellbeing Labs planner coordinator.
