Description

This course has been created for teachers who want to understand group dynamics and how they affect the school environment, as well as to learn more about managing an effective and up to date classroom that encourages participation, motivation and engaged learning using the latest techniques and classroom tools.

Through interactive and practical activities participants will gain knowledge about the various types of conflict and how to use them as an opportunity for growth. They will increase their own ability to model and encourage active listening, empathy and emotional literacy among students. Participants will also share classroom strategies, acquire new teaching methodologies such as the “Flipped Classroom”, learn how to establish classroom rules, develop rapport, and assess and evaluate learners.

By the end of the course, participants will enjoy a greater awareness of their students’ emotional needs and behaviour and will have the skills to promote stronger classroom relationships and a more positive climate in school – for teachers and students. Also, they will have gained greater insight into what makes a classroom run smoothly and will take away practical ideas for effective learning and participation.

Reviews about this course

I enjoyed above all else professional attitude of our trainer. She took care of positive atmosphere during classes. Her knowledge is extensive. She introduced to us great techniques and excercises we can use in our classrooms. She also encouraged us to explain our techniques. It was very motivating and creative experience.
