Miniconference in Positive Psychology G1F, 7,5 credits, KU328G

This course provides an overview of key researchers in cognitive neuroscience, especially those in positive psychology, and their most central theories, models, and research in the format of a scientific conference.

Students choose one central figure in positive psychology or psychological coaching and write a review of their most important research findings and theories.

Course seminars simulate a scientific conference in which students give a brief oral conference presentation followed by open debate and discussion. As such, you get to practice how to make a good scientific presentation in English and an opportunity to get personal feedback from the teachers and other students.
