This 2 week Erasmus+ course has been created for teachers who want to foster a more lively environment to encourage interest in learning as well as to understand group dynamics and how they affect the classroom.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn ‘by doing’ through a range of activities and experiences aimed toward promoting higher student self-esteem, increased student involvement and greater cohesion among teachers, students and their families. In addition to this, participants will learn about the various types of conflict and how to use them as an opportunity for growth. Through hands-on, practical activities they will increase their own ability to model and encourage active listening, empathy and emotional literacy among today’s students – and tomorrow’s active citizens.
By the end of the course, teachers will have acquired greater knowledge about how creativity, improved communication and enhanced relational skills can be effective allies in discouraging school-leaving, favouring a more meaningful school experience and combating the early signs of teacher burn-out. They will also enjoy a greater awareness of their students’ emotional needs and behaviour and will have the skills to promote a more positive, collaborative climate in school – for teachers and students.
