Introduction to using Talent-based Strengths in a Learning Environment
Introduction to using Talent-based Strengths in a Learning Environment’, is a 1 hour interactive seminar that offers a practical approach to positive psychology in the classroom. Teachers will be introduced to the concept of talent-based teaching and learning and see how a strengths approach improves relationships in the classroom and staffroom. The aim is to encourage teachers to seek a deeper understanding of themselves and their students.
Strengthening Teacher’s Professional Practice and Wellbeing
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 understand adopt a strengths based approach in the classroom they focus on student progress. Focusing on strengths to manage weakness has been found to increase student engagement and promote learning. Students feel recognised for what they do well and find strategies to approach a challenging task. Teachers focus on different ways to meet outcomes rather than worrying about what’s missing. This reduction in worry builds healthy habits of mind and stronger levels of resilience. In listening to current research based theories, teachers will see how using their talents allows them to create inclusive learning environments that increase engagement and wellbeing.
