Webinar: Teaching Strategies for Challenging Behaviours

15th Oct 2019
03:30 PM - 04:30 PM



Challenging classroom behaviours can stop students from engaging with their learning, and take teacher focus from teaching to behavior management.

Teachers can help minimise disruptive behaviours by creating safe learning environments and building positive relationships with students.

By understanding the motivations and unmet needs that are leading to challenging behaviours, teachers can change the learning environment in a positive way.

This webinar shares your experiences of challenging classroom behaviours, unpacks what gives rise to them, and repacks them with management strategies that support change.
