World leader applying well-being research to learning
Sherri Fisher is a pioneer in the growing field of positive education: applying research for both achievement and well-being.
Academic-social-emotional benefits of positive emotions include:
- Broadening thinking – Essential for effective problem solving, mindful critical thinking.
- Expanding interpersonal trust – Key for building the relationships and teams that support learning.
- Increasing positive coping approaches – Important for dealing with the day-to-day ups and downs we all face.
- Expanding mindsets – Students and teachers with a growth mindset know that “smart” is not what you are: it is a set of behaviors that you do. Students who are “smart” in this way get smarter.
- Developing resilience – Substantive for preventing depression and moving forward through challenges; other research shows that more resilient students are higher achievers as well.
Sherri co-authored the first study to explore efforts to measure the extent to which positive psychology interventions can be employed within school systems to increase happiness, resilience and achievement, and decrease the likelihood of depression. (Research: Building a Foundation for Positive Psychology in Schools). A pioneer in the field, Sherri is the world’s first learning specialist to have earned the University of Pennsylvania’s MAPP degree. She’s an invaluable colleague for professionals and organizations.
