Not related to education, really, but…

Inside Higher Ed has an article about a professor at Amherst College who is teaching a course called Consumption and Pursuit of Happiness.  The article quotes the professor as saying the course

is not about teaching students how or what they should consume but rather about teaching them to become aware of their personal consumption in relation to their happiness.

That sounds like a course most of us should be taking!
