About the course

Understanding the purpose of behaviour, and what is maintaining a behaviour that we don’t want in our classrooms, is crucial to creating positive changes in our students and classrooms. Likewise, knowing how to get more of what is good for our pupils - better attention, more concentration, more effort, and co-operative relationships - are the basis on which the classroom becomes a learning-focused environment.

Teachers often have to navigate this process by trial and error, but fortunately, there are systematic ways of understanding and analysing behaviour that can enable us to develop effective strategies for working with students. Very often these strategies involve re-shaping our own behaviour as well as that of students.

This session will study the dynamics of human behaviour patterns, and consider how well-evidenced principles form behavioural literature can cut workload, reduce stress, and bring about a more positive classroom climate. These principles can be applied to any age group, from young children to adults.

Who should attend?

All teachers would benefit from this session as the principles can be applied to any age group.
