Metody dydaktyczne:

The course is intended to be very interactive, encouraging students to speak up, to ask questions and to discuss various issues. In the same vein, small group activities will be designed to increase class participation and make the material more meaningful. If technology allows, we will also try out at least some of the numerous measures and tests made available e.g. by the Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania, to get a hands on experience of this field. Reading lists will be provided and students will be encouraged to explore the field further.
