CSS 100HE: Strengths Educator for Higher Education
This course prepares educators to develop and demonstrate an understanding of the psychology and principles of strengths-based education. They will explore their talents -- their unique and recurring patterns of thought, feeling, and behavior -- and learn how they contribute to their teaching style and approach to student development.

Educators will review Gallup's research on engagement and discuss ways that strengths-based development can drive engagement among students, staff and faculty and create an environment that supports high wellbeing. They will develop strategies to implement a strengths-based approach on campus and work toward maximizing individual talents to create the greatest potential for individual achievement.

Educators will:

  1. Explore the strengths philosophy and learn how this approach drives the engagement of students, staff and faculty
  2. Understand how a focus on strengths relates to student success
  3. Discover and explore their own strengths
  4. Build a strengths vocabulary
  5. Gain insights in applying strengths in daily life
  6. Gain strengths-based development activities that can be shared with others

Registration is required. Register today! Payment will be collected via Departmental Transfer.
