来自POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY: CHARACTER, GRIT AND RESEARCH METHODS的热门评论
I took this course to understand how to apply Positive Psychology. This course focuses heavily on creating research, which was not my goal. I did appreciate the module on how to UNDERSTAND research.
I am honoured to be taught by Prof Duckworth and Dr Robertson-Kraft. I have been extremely interested in the concept of GRIT and SELF - CONTROL; this course has been extremely helpful.
I thought one of the ideas behind this course in helping people find an easy way to read research articles and not be intimidated by the process was great!
Not a fan of research and stats etc but this course was brilliant because the content and examples used as well at the lecturers were phenomenal.
