About the course

The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity.

It is rare for a Kindergarten child to be disengaged. It is a common experience among adolescents. What happens in those intervening years and what is within the control of a teacher to respond to the disengaged student? In this session the  presenter will explore some of the common manifestations of disengaged students and then suggest different approaches, within the control of the teacher, that can be used to re-engage those students in the learning community. The key, as with so many behavioural issues, is preventative strategies and then restorative approaches once things have gone awry. This is a course for teachers who believe that all students not only have a right to learn but they want to learn, and that our challenge as teachers is to find ways to connect them to a learning community.

Delivery method: Live online event

The event will be one hour in duration via ZOOM and consist of live delivery of content at the specified time by a presenter and a host. You will also have an opportunity to interact with other participants and engage with the presenter online. Completing this course will contribute to one hour of professional learning and a certificate will be provided at the end of the session.
