Showing Gratitude through Open Education [clear filter]

Table 10 - Being Grateful for OER Courses
The science of gratitude shows us that being grateful has many positive benefits in our lives. Approaching OER with an attitude of gratefulness can rewire our brain and make us happier. By being grateful, you'll be more appreciative about the open content you use and be more willing to share your content in return.



In this presentation, I'm going to talk about what researchers have found about gratitude and the positive effects gratitude can have on our lives. You'll also have some tips that can help you become more grateful in your life.
