Introduction to Positive Education
1 June, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pmHK$1200
Positive education brings together the science of positive psychology with best practice teaching to encourage and support individuals, schools and communities to flourish. Flourishing can be described as a combination of ‘feeling good and doing good’.
This workshop will introduce the key ideas of positive education. It will include learning some key concepts, some strategies for yourself and some strategies to use in your classroom.
“If students can develop healthy levels of personal wellbeing, they are more likely to achieve their academic potential; establish supportive relationships; make meaningful contributions to their communities and lead fulfilling lives” (Stephen Meak, Principal Geelong Grammar School).
The course is geared towards classroom teachers or leaders who have an emerging interest in Positive Education and want to learn more. Whilst a stand-alone course it is also an introductory course for the 3 day Deepening Positive Education Course running next academic year. Course participants will spend the afternoon listening to case study presentations around action research from participants of this year’s Deepening Positive Education course as another way of gathering new ideas and inspirations.
