Best of Higher Ed: Teaching Happiness
This summer, KUT is revisiting episodes of the podcast "Higher Ed." This episode was originally posted on March 8, 2015.
Each week, KUT's Jennifer Stayton talks with Dr. Ed Burger, President of Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, about higher education, lifelong learning, and exercising the brain. This week, Ed and Jennifer discuss the intriguing idea of teaching happiness in the classroom. Not as a separate subject, but as part of just about all subjects students already study. Could that work? How would it work?
What does happiness even mean? Ed and Jennifer explore that and reveal the solution to the math puzzler about buying and selling items and making a profit. Can money buy happiness? Listen on to find out!
