EDU.5313 Science of Happiness for Educator and Student Wellbeing

This course examines wellness on a personal and systems level for educators, school leaders, and their students. This class is an opportunity to re-evaluate your beliefs, values, and assumptions about the underpinnings of happiness and well-being and to learn the research behind the science of happiness. In this course we look at how individuals can create positive change by reinterpreting their goals and identifying steps towards successful experiences. Key findings from the fields of positive psychology will inform our understanding of the biopsychosocial underpinnings of well-being. The class seeks to foster in teachers more fulfilling and productive lives inside and out of schools and to support educators with an understanding of human potential.
