Teaching Tips


The Senate Committee on Teaching & Advisement wishes you a productive semester.  This first 2017-18 teaching tip encourages us to begin to explore positive psychology in the classroom.  How can we cultivate emotional learning to impact academic learning?  The linked article suggests educators might:

  2. connect with students’ emotions for deeper learning, and
  3. help students identify their strengths and practice those strengths.

Looking to explore positive psychology further with colleagues?  Please join us for a workshop: We are Teachers! Positive Psychology in the Classroom, Wed. Oct 11 from 12:00-1:00 p.m. in FCPE Classroom – flyer attached.
