The psychology of surviving and thriving: adventures in online topic development with Lydia Woodyatt & Michelle Arnold
The Psychology of Surviving and Thriving (PSYC1108) is an online elective topic designed to increase student autonomy, success and well-being at university, and into their careers using evidence-based strategies that increase the successful achievement of academic, personal, and professional goals. The topic focuses on learning about and implementing skills related to this rationale (e.g., goal setting, notetaking, metacognitive strategies to support better study and learning, dealing with stress and your own and others emotions, common barriers to achievement). The topic involves students implementing psychological science but is pitched as a first year topic with no prerequisite knowledge. This topic was designed from the outset for online only delivery and as such contains a number of innovations in this regard. During this presentation we will demonstrate aspects of the topic and provide feedback from the initial student cohort (N = 190).
