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.

Predavanja su bila zanimljiva i korisna. Ipak, voljela bih da je bilo više konkretnih primjera dobre prakse i radionica. isto tako, svakodnevni problemi s internetom ometali su normalan rad. Komunikacija s kolegama bila je izvrsna. Konačno, ovom tečaju mogu dati ocjenu vrlo dobar.

I enjoyed the course and found it useful not only for school but for myself as well. The main focus was on the importance of positive emotions and being aware of the moment you are in. Thank you, Marta!
