These courses are ideal for teachers at any stage of their career who are looking to continue their professional development. They are designed to equip teachers with the necessary awareness and skills to improve critical thinking and patterns of behaviours to minimize teacher stress and conflict and to maximize teacher effectiveness both in and out of the classroom. All listed courses meet the criteria outlined by the Commissioner for Teacher Regulations as remedial education courses.
Designed for educators in the K-12 system, in this 3-day course you will deepen classroom management skills by exploring ways to respond to challenging classroom situations where the pressures are numerous, complex, and potentially contentious. You will examine how to deal constructively with teaching content process and student/faculty relationship issues, heightened emotion, challenging participant behaviours, and conflict. Scenario-based simulations will provide the opportunity to practice relevant communication and intervention skills. Reflective practice will be encouraged through self-reflection and peer feedback.
There are no classes scheduled at this time.
Teachers in the K-12 sector face a multitude of pressures and challenges in the modern classroom. Boundaries between the professional educator and the student can become blurred. With evolutions in social media and “student-centred” educational approaches, the potential for the blurring of boundaries increases. Through discussion and scenario analysis, this 3-day, face-to-face course will explore the moral and ethical gray zones that surface in professional relationships. You will define and identify the types of behaviours and situations that could threaten professional teacher conduct and stature. Finally, you will acquire assertive communication strategies to respectfully and clearly articulate professional boundaries when challenged.You will then be able to connect authentically with students while maintaining boundaries.
This three day course will run from the following dates at our New Westminster campus:
