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.

I really liked the course I attended in one of the most spectacular Italian and European town I have visited so far. Our teacher was nice and well trained. What I liked the most, was the approach to mindfulness and motivation which our students could really use in developing life skills easier.

I really liked the course, in general and also in a particular way. It was presented exellent by our teacher Ilaria and the matirials that she gave us were very useful. I appreciate the opportunity to share our experiences with Finish, Spanish and French colleagues, to have clear understanding on the topic of the course. I and my frined Maria went home full of new ideas and concepts about teaching in possitive and mindful way. Best regards from Bulgaria :)

Gostei da experiência de formação em Erasmos. No geral o curso foi bom. A temática é muito pertinente e atual. Gostei de contactar com professores de outros países e conhecer um pouco as suas realidades escolares. A metodologia utilizada nas sessões é muito teórica. Deveria haver mais conhecimento e relacionamento entre os participantes. Gostaria que houvesse alguma visita a uma instituição local relacionada com a temática do curso. É uma experiência a voltar a fazer se houver essa oportunidade.

Overall, I found the course a very positive experience for the knowledge and sharing of different realities (countries). I would like the course to be more practical and less theoretical.

In general, I enjoyed the course very much concerning the professionalism and kindness of teacher Ilaria, the subjects, the dynamics, the clima and the relationships developed between all the members of the class. The subjects were not really new for me but the way we worked, the ressources Ilaria presented us, the analysis and projects we have made individually and in medium group increased my knowledges and skills. Sharing experiences with colegues from other countries was, certainly, an unforgetable experience!

An excellent course that I highly recommend! The trainer Susan Gagliano managed, with her professionalism and posture, to boost our dreams. Nothing like Positive Psychology in a school environment!
