Course Description

Positive education is challenging the traditional educational paradigm worldwide; it aims to promote well-being and happiness in a holistic perspective in the classroom and beyond, providing young people with knowledge and life skills to flourish in their present and future life.

This contemporary educational approach is based on Positive Psychology, which is the scientific study of human flourishing and optimal functioning, and focuses on strengths and virtues that enable individuals, communities and organizations to succeed.

The course will introduce participants both to Positive Psychology fundamentals, presenting the most relevant international theories and references, and to Positive Education theories and techniques.

By the end of the course participants will have learnt how to design programs that combine academics with the development of character strengthening and well-being, such as the experience of positive emotions, engagement with activities, establishment of meaningful practices and relationships etc.

During the course participants will also be introduced to mindfulness as an opportunity to train their minds, drive attention to present moments, relax, achieve goals, and boost a certain level of self-awareness. They will be invited to design a personal project based on positive education to share with their colleagues once they go back to school.

Finally, participants will be involved in an active learning process also focusing on personal experience and self-reflection, combining cognitive and emotional elements to make the learning process easier and ensure long-lasting retention of the new knowledge.

A tanfolyamom első részének címe: Happy schools: Positive Education for Well-Being and Life-Skills Development in Barcelona. Ezen a héten a boldog diák és tanár jellemzőivel, a pozitív személyiségjegyek megnevezésével és saját személyiségünk alapos vizsgálatával, erősségeink és gyengeségeink felismerésével indult. Megismertük a jólét fogalmát az oktatás vonatkozásában, bevezettek minket a Mindfulness témakörébe és gyakorlati ötletekkel gazdagodtunk intézményeink pozitívabb légkörének megvalósítása terén. A második héten a Mindfulness for teachers c. kurzusra csatlakoztam be, hogy elmélyülhessek az újonnan megismert módszerben. A tanfolyamon különböző, figyelmünket tudatosan a jelenre koncentráló, stesszoldó légzéstechnikákat, és energizáló gyakorlatokat sajátítottunk el. A tevékenységek mentális és fizikai életünkre gyakorlolt pozitív hatásai már odakint érezhetőek voltak, így saját tapasztalataim alapján is bátran alkalmazom majd a tanítás során. Oktatóm, Marta Mandolini szakmai tudása és rendkívül nyitott, barátságos szemlélete egyértelműen hozzájárult a tanfolyam sikerességéhez és a kurzusszervező minőségi megítéléséhez. A Europass Teacher Academy a mobilitás teljes szakaszában maximálisan támogatta a szakmai felkészülésemet, biztonságomat, valamint kulturális ismereteim bővítését.

To be honest I was hoping to receive more practical knowledge than theoretical. The course was mainly based on theory and it was less interactive, which I was looking forward to. I did not gain any new teaching methods or learning practices. The course provider had lots of knowledge in the field, but I think she was not well-prepared enough. All in all, I acquired some new information on the topic, however not as much as I expected.
