Design the Positive: Positive Thinking, Positive Communication and Positive School Spaces - Florence

Rating: 5/57 users

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.

All our courses in Florence include 2 city guided tours and 1 full day Tuscan Escursion (usually on a Saturday)

The course was one of the best courses I've attended in my 20-years of working as a teacher. The group was really colourful, full of interesting and intelligent people and they offered me a lot of useful feedback and lots of laughs. I can't find the words to praise the mentor enough: Susan Gagliano was awesome, leading the group with example, generously sharing her immense knowledge, skills and experiences. I recommend the course to everybody who's interested in making his teaching and life more positive and inspired.
