Assumption colleague Sarah Cavanagh recently blogged on her just-underway Psychology course, Motivation and Emotion. Her design includes a community service component in which African Community Education, an after-school program devoted to helping children of African immigrants adjust to a new school system in a new language.
A Psychology professor, Sarah’s research includes a focus on positive psychology; the would-be psych major in me finds her work particularly fascinating. On top of that, she’s an innovative teacher. You can read about the course (and much more) at her blog, Inspiring Things Are Inspiring.
And, as if that weren’t enough, Sarah also has a blog for Psychology Today – Once More, With Feeling, I highly recommend both.
