Subject 1: Introduction to Positive Education
Day 1: 19 August 2016, Day 2: 20 August 2016, Day 3: 16 September 2016

Subject 2: Building Positive Education Communities
Day 1: 4 November 2016, Day 2: 5 November 2016, Day 3: 26 November 2016

The course consists of two subjects:
  • Introduction to Positive Education introduces the science of positive psychology and positive education. Participants will learn about different theories of wellbeing and flourishing, examine core positive psychology constructs relevant to education, and explore positive interventions that can be used in classrooms and across schools to build wellbeing and resilience in students and staff.
  • Building Positive Education Communities explores how educators can initiate and lead systematic change across educational communities. Scientifically supported models for implementing change within organisations will be considered, as well as methods for evaluation and policy implications. Using an action research model, students will apply these models to their educational setting, considering which approaches and levers may be best for supporting sustainable change within their context.
Assessments include verbal presentations, written reports, and interactive exercises that will help students directly apply the theory and exercises to their work in the classroom or school community.
