“Those Who Can, Teach”: Reflections on Positive and Strength-Based Schooling

David W. CHAN(陳維鄂)

Abstract

The issues relating to the adequacy of teacher preparation were discussed in the context of the changes in pre-university and university education curriculum structure and the positive psychology movement. Positive schooling as well as identifying and using character strengths were described as promising approaches to improve teacher preparation. The use of positive intervention exercises that promote for teachers a satisfying life that encompasses the pleasant life, the engaged life, and the meaningful life interpretable as the antithesis of teacher burnout was explored.

Keywords: positive psychology; teacher preparation; positive schooling; character strengths
