Increasing Happiness in
Learning and Life

One of the most common goals reported by students is to be happy in life, but they often cannot explain what happiness means and how to achieve it. What is happiness and how can you increase it for yourselves and your students? Review the highlights of current research on happiness and suggestions for increasing it. Use the current research on happiness, the growth mindset, and grit to increase student motivation, success, persistence, and life satisfaction. The session includes interactive activities, practical ideas, and resources useful in your own life and in your first-year experience course.

Presented by Dr. Marsha Fralick & Dr. Seth Batiste, authors of College & Career Success
