Positive education is an applied field that weaves the science of positive psychology into educational practice in order to support the wellbeing and learning of students, teachers, staff and leaders in schools, early learning and higher education settings. IPPA President, Professor Lea Waters will begin with a brief overview of the field showing the compelling case for, and outcomes of, positive education before handing over to four early career researchers and graduate students working under her supervision. 

This symposium will be of interest to those wanting a snap shot of the field and those who are deeply embedded and wish to learn about cutting-edge developments.
