Course Description

The course has been designed to fulfill the increasing need and interest in the topic, that was shown by teachers attending our Erasmus+ courses. Here, the necessity of a practical course, designed in a workshop-formula, where, besides theoretical introductions, teachers will experiment in first person exercises and create projects to enhance a positive approach to school and education in general.

We will learn how to enhance positive thinking, reducing negative self-talk, personalizing and catastrophisizing, practicing gratitude, humor and mindfulness, and learning the importance of praising ourselves. We will learn how to practice positive communication with ourselves, our students and colleagues, learning how to convert a negative, disruptive, un-effective communication in a virtuous circle of positive relationships, referring also to graphic design as a positive visual communication tool. We will then expand to the surrounding environment, the school, to learn about the importance of positive design, architecture, decoration in and outside the classroom, inspired by design psychology principles and driven by the peculiarity of each country and case.

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 new knowledge.

My experience has been very positive. Both the training center we attended and the teacher who gave you the training were concerned at all times with our well-being and that we understood everything that was being exposed.

I have liked very much the course because it has been mainly practice, the whole theory has been put into practice with very playful and useable resources for the classroom. In addition, I have been able to meet people from other educational systems and I have learnt other work techniques.
