Becoming Trauma Sensitive in the Classroom 
With Linda Conyard, Gestalt Psychotherapist

 

Disengaged students, disruptive behaviour that impacts the learning of all students in the classroom and current behaviour management strategies are weighing heavily on the shoulders of classroom teachers. Research suggests that teachers are underusing many evidence-based practices such as Schoolwide Positive Behaviour Support (Hepburn & Beamish, 2019). Student learning outcomes, crowded curriculum, increase in administrative and reporting tasks, classroom management, additional roles in the school, increase in behaviour issues and professional development expectations places a significant amount of stress on teachers. There appears to be a dearth of recent literature addressing the impact of stress on teachers. Trauma is beginning to be discussed in schools which I believe will make a substantial change to the classroom environment. Understanding and recognizing trauma will support teachers in the way they interact with their students and it will assist them to identify their own reactions and give an opportunity for personal development. Becoming trauma sensitive will reduce stress levels and will support engagement and student learning outcomes. Students cannot learn when their brain is in survival mode.

Designing an Effective E-learning Course to Complement your Classroom Teaching
With Sarah Marwick, Director & Senior Consultant, Edutech KM Ltd

 

We know that students learn at their own pace. Many want more control over their learning. If you have ever considered creating your own online or e-learning course for your students or mapping out the content for someone to develop for you, this webinar will cover the key points to consider.

 

We will start by discussing what we mean by e-learning, and clear up any confusion between e-learning, online, distance, blended learning, or any of the other terms out there today! We will then look at why you might invest time in developing an e-learning course and explore the benefits both for students and for teachers.

 

Sarah will use examples of her own work to demonstrate concepts of instructional design – addressing issues such as the type of content best suited to this form of delivery, different levels of initial understanding and different styles of learning. She will show how to make the content more interactive and engaging to the students and outline the opportunity for students to assess or expand their understanding.

After attending you will:

  • Understand the reasons why you might develop an e-learning course
  • Be aware of the steps to follow to create an e-learning course
  • Realise some of the options available to add engagement and increase the effectiveness of the learning

Sarah is a former high school teacher and experienced instructional designer, with a passion for fun, effective and personalised learning. She is the Founder and Managing Director of Edutech KM Ltd, a learning solutions company in New Zealand, and the Founder of the charitable trust, Know Your Purpose. Through the Trust, Sarah delivers transformational programs for teenagers that inspire and empower them to recognise their unique strengths and passions and make a positive difference for themselves and others.
