Workshop Details

The primary focus of this half-day in-house workshop will be exploring challenging learner behaviours and how to positively address them.

Participants will explore the following questions: 

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

Julia will share proven strategies from her teaching practice, including developing and maintaining a Living Consensus. The session will also be an opportunity for participants to explore examples from current literature and produce a plan to integrate at least one new strategy for avoiding challenging behaviour into their own teaching practice.

Who is this in-house workshop for? 

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.
