EVENT DATE & TIME:
Thursday, May 28, 2020 – 9:00am-10:30pm Pacific
Hope is the belief that the tomorrow will be better than today and that you have the power to make that so. In the book Making Hope Happen: Create the Future you want for Yourself and Others, Shane Lopez shares his meta-analyses of hope research and concludes that, with other conditions being equal, hope leads to a 12% gain in academic performance, 14% gain in workplace outcomes and a 10% gain in happiness.
This Webinar will help you explore how you can increase hope in the lives of your students, your colleagues and yourself. This webinar was previously presented as part of the NISOD Annual Virtual Conference.
This session provides opportunity to:
- Review of the definition and impact of Hope in teaching.
- Discuss three core competencies of hope: goals, agency and pathways.
- Explore methods to measure hope and hopeful thinking.
- Collect specific in and out of the classroom activities designed to develop hopeful thinking in students.
If you are interested in helping students be more successful by helping them develop hopeful thinking, this is the webinar for you!
