About the workshop
What people are saying...

“…everything boils down to rapport and relationships with your students, so the strategies I have picked up in this discussion will be great!”

“[the] idea of a ‘living consensus’ – I do some of it with my students but I could do more.”

“I just so enjoyed this course, it was truly envigorating.”

“I had a very productive morning – what a fantastic, passionate and influencing workshop leader Julia is. Her passion for PD really shines through. Thanks! I can’t wait to put these ideas in to practice.“ Amanda Bullock, Hamilton workshop, Feb 2014

While of particular value to practitioners who are struggling to engage learners with challenging behaviours, it will also be relevant for those who seek to assist new staff in tertiary education.

The participants will be exploring the following questions:

Who is responsible for managing learning behaviours?
How can the responsibly be shifted?
How can we actively engage all students in learning?

These questions will be addressed through examples of proven strategies from the facilitators teaching practice (developing and maintaining a living consensus), examples from the participants practice and examples from current literature.

Evaluation of the impact of the workshop will focus on evidence that:

Short term (on completion of workshop)

Workshop participants have at least one new strategy to engage challenging learners that they wish to integrate into their practice.
Workshop participants have shared at least one strategy from their own practice with at least one other participant.

Long term (one year after workshop completion)

Workshop participants have integrated at least one new strategy to engage challenging learners into their practice

Participant’s student feedback indicates that they are engaged in learning when working with the new strategy/s
