Positive Education

This chapter provides an overview of the evaluation of Positive Education at Geelong Grammar School. It explores early strategies to assess the impact of Positive Education, and discusses the growing recognition of the importance of rigorous evaluation and research methods. This developing awareness culminated in the employment of Dr Meredith O’Connor to guide and lead the strategic direction and practical implementation of the evaluation of Positive Education, as well as efforts to give back to the scientific community by communicating key learning with wider audiences. The chapter overviews the plan to engage in the comprehensive and systematic evaluation of Positive Education via an Australian Research Council linkage project that assesses the impact of Positive Education through quantitative, qualitative, and biological indicators. Also showcased within the chapter is the Positive Institute Project, which focuses on the implementation and evaluation of strategies to help Geelong Grammar School to become a positive institution.

Keywords:   Positive Education, Positive Psychology, school-based evaluation, school-based research, flourishing, positive institutions
