Are you tired of trying to keep your student's attention? Would you like to have better teacher/student relationships? Do your students have more potential than what they currently achieve?
Australian students experience an alarmingly high rate of disengagement, and this causes extra stress for teachers. There is opportunity for students to increase performance and for teachers to experience increased job satisfaction. Join us in becoming part of the solution.
This course provides teachers with the specialised content knowledge to actively engage with all students in the classroom setting. The elements of engagement are examined and the responsibility of teachers and students considered. During the course, participants will learn about relationships, behaviours, social interactions and student responses to work.
This course is presented face-to-face over 5 hours. It may be scheduled over one full day, or two evening sessions. Course content is founded on the expertise and research of Dr Criss Moore.
This course is recommended for teachers of all stages and subjects.
