Strengthening Teacher’s Professional Practice and Wellbeing
- Happier Teachers
- Engaged Students
- Healthy Habits of Mind
Research suggests there is a direct reciprocal relationship between learning outcomes and wellbeing – people thrive in situations where they feel secure, valued and appreciated. A strengths approach does not assume people are broken or need fixing. Rather, it highlights potential and builds upon what is already present within a person and helps them, make it better.
When teachers adopt a strengths based approach in the classroom they focus on student progress.
Students feel recognised for what they do well and find strategies to approach a challenging task. Learning focuses on different ways to meet an outcome rather than worrying about what’s missing. This reduction in worry builds healthy habits of mind and stronger levels of resilience. Focusing on strengths to manage weakness has been found to increase student engagement and promote learning.
This is a research based seminar and teachers will be given access to further study materials.
- Spot potential talents in your own and student behaviours
- Use positive psychology strategies to communicate and collaborate in the classroom and staffroom
- Use strengths-based approach to increase engagement and wellbeing in the classroom and staffroom
This outcome focused seminar seeks to boosts moral and lower stress. Teachers are introduced to strengths principles and hear factual examples of where a positive approach in the classroom engaged students and improved learning outcomes. Teachers will be encouraged to identify talents in themselves, colleagues and students and invited to see how teaching from their own strengths could be more effective than struggling to replicate someone with different talents.
Our next courses will be run in term 3
