Description

This course is focussed on enhancing a positive approach to education, and promoting well-being and happiness within the school environment.

Participants will learn how to develop their positive thinking whilst being introduced to key concepts of positive psychology. They will be presented with international theories and research which will add substance to their practical exercises. They will practice positive communication with themselves, their students and colleagues, learning how to convert negative, disruptive, un-effective communication into a virtuous circle of positive relationships, referring also to graphic design as a positive visual communication tool. As a fundamental element of the course participants will also be introduced to mindfulness, which wil enable them to clear their minds, boost self-awareness and focus on their goals.

Participants will also 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. They will be invited to design a personal project based on positive education to share with their colleagues once they go back to school.
