Teaching

last updated 2022-10-18

I have an equally strong passion for both teaching and research; indeed my career does not feel complete nor as meaningful and satisfying to me when I am primarily engaged in only one of these passions. My teaching dossier includes several upper-level undergraduate courses which I have developed, including: Emotions & Behaviour, Positive Psychology: The Science of Wellbeing, Nature & Wellbeing, The Psychology of Meaning in Life. I ground the curriculum for all of these courses in scientific evidence and theory alongside practical, applied knowledge, in-class discussions and experiential assignments. A sample of syllabi of these courses are posted below. Syllabi are updated every semester./p>

I am also a co-developer of the free online course Nature Connectedness: For a New Relationship With Nature out of the University of Derby.
