GEN 150: Course Reflection Journal

Spring 2021
A journal is a personal record of learning experiences including notes, observations, thoughts, and ideas reflective of the materials presented in class. You will keep a journal recording your thoughts and application of concepts discussed in class.
The purpose of the Course Reflection Journal is:
• To lock-in and deepen your understanding of each lesson’s learning outcomes.
• To explore how positive psychology practices inspire self-reflection on the role of happiness in your own life.
• To help students conceptualize how happiness is practiced differently across cultures and borders.
