The Science of Happiness: Virtual Classroom Tips for Success

You are invited to a complimentary webinar on Tuesday, October 20th at 3pm EST: The Science of Happiness: Virtual Classroom Tips for Success, sponsored by U-Thrive Educational Services.

Come learn how two NYU Professors successfully transformed the most popular elective, The Science of Happiness, from an in-class format to an online experience. In this 60-minute webinar Dr. Alan Schlechter and Dan Lerner, MAPP will share tips and tools they have been using to effectively engage with students online. They will also discuss a framework for well-being, PERMA, that can be used as a metric to help faculty and staff monitor student mental health and overall well-being. Whether you are a Physics Professor or Student Success Coordinator, you will walk away with concrete tools on how to integrate wellness with your students, in your classroom, and perhaps most importantly, with yourself.
