[Link] Positive Psychology and Higher Education

Positive Psychology and a strengths-based approach to higher education should not be confused with fads that have swept through higher education.

Strengths-based education is actually a return to basic educational principles that emphasized the positive aspects of student effort and achievement, as well as their strengths.
