General Description

Student management can be one of the most challenging aspects of teaching. What is clear is that consistent and fair practices produce the best responses, especially when paired with specific techniques to build positive relationships. Part of this session will assist you to determine and set up clear and fair processes for yourself (in your classroom) and perhaps also for teams of teachers that you work with.

There are also occasions where students do not respond to clear and consistent practices. On these occasions, it can be easy to become frustrated or to question our own abilities. The information presented in this session will attempt to help you understand where some of these behaviours may be coming from and how to deal with them.

We will use a problem-based learning approach in this session to look at where we are in terms of student management, and what we need to do to get to where we want to go. With this approach results will be based on YOUR needs and your class.

Audience

Classroom teachers in secondary schools.

A worthwhile course to do especially as school staff together so we can collaborate and be on the “same page” in a whole school approach to class room management / discipline policies.

I found the course to be very informative, and it reinforced the fact that I actually was providing a positive learning environment for my students – when I took the time to analyse and reflect on it.

However, if you work in a more diverse environment from the normal classroom as I do BYETC, it didn’t provide an array of alternate strategies that I wasn’t already implementing – I needed ideas that were ‘out of the box’!!!

A well organised and developed course that provided practical skills and the inclusion of personal expertise and experience of the presenter was easy to implement into everyday teaching practice. The course excelled at encouraging personal reflection and gave me the confidence to implement changes within my challenging classrooms.

Enjoyed going through this course and thinking through welfare procedures for students within our school. It was helpful to make some processes explicit.

I enjoyed the course. It was a good refresher as well as learning a whole lot of new info that hadn’t been covered when I did my teacher training. Thanks for the opportunity.

Overall I enjoyed participating in this on-line course, the first I have signed up for. The ability to complete it at my own pace allowed me the opportunity to consider my responses. I liked being part of a group so that I could benefit from the input and observations of other teachers.

I really enjoyed this course very much. There were parts of the course that I was already aware of, but there was a great deal that I learnt that I was able to make connections to the knowledge I already had.
This was an excellent course because it uncovers new strategies to help with behaviour management that helps with learning in the 21 century. I will definitely be recommending this course to other teachers.

A great course that helps you reflect on your student management. Lots of ideas and plenty of strategies to implement into your classroom.

This is an apt and highly appropriate course for both newly qualified and experienced teachers. Because of the ever evolving dynamics of the teaching-learning process necessitated by a multitude of factors such as but not limited to changing legislative policies, technological advancements and the diverse student population, a teacher not equipped with a range of strategies is doomed to struggle and falling short of achieving the desired learning outcomes. This course has a rekindling effect, which compels teachers to either revisit, analyse and refine their current strategies or devise new strategies to replace their strategies which may no longer be effective under the current teaching environment. In short, this is a highly appropriate course which is sure to equip teachers with much more ammunition and greater latitude enabling them to discharge their role as teachers much more effectively. I highly recommend this course.

I found this course to be effective in giving me strategies to engage disengaged students. This has had an impact immediately on my lessons.

This was an excellent course. Right from the word go I was using suggestions from Lauren. It was a safe, open place to share experiences and not feel like you are alone in discipline sometimes. It was great to share stories and hear feedback from others. I am using strategies that I learned in this class and they are really effective. I would recommend this course to experienced (always good for a refresher in today’s age with technology changing) and also to new teachers who are looking for help.

I found this a very interesting course. The readings and activities were varied and gave some excellent ideas on different approaches to classroom management.
I also found the openness of the other participants to share their experiences with the group to be particularly useful as it allowed for me to consider different perspectives and scenarios that I myself have not necessarily experienced in my own teaching.
