This quarter, the students in my integrated learning course comprised of COLL 101 and ENG 101 explored college strategies and writing within the context of our course theme: HAPPINESS. For their final project, student “Happiness Detectives” explored various themes of Positive Psychology such as resilience, relationships, gratitude, generosity, and flow. They used their newly-acquired information literacy skills (thanks to Megan Watson, our course librarian!) to learn more about these happiness themes and to create a 4-5 minute happiness public service announcement (PSA) video with college students in mind.
I share their PSA videos with you below and I’ve included their bibliographies in case you’d like to be a happiness detective, too!
