Positive Education in Asia and Beyond

Abstract :

Positive education is the application of positive psychology principles to the education domain. Relative to positive psychology, positive education has not received a great deal of theoretical and empirical attention. In addition, there is a significant dearth of positive education theory and research focusing on students in the Asian region. This article explores positive education, its links to positive psychology, and its relevance and importance to wellbeing and learning in the Asian context. Building on the series of studies in this Special Issue, the article then outlines critical conceptual, measurement, and research design considerations for positive education research going forward. © 2016, De La Salle University.
