Description

Research demonstrates that students who develop strong relationships with teachers give greater effort. They are more persistent, engaged, and confident in their ability to succeed. They are more likely to earn higher grades. Although not as often talked about, cultivating strong relationships also benefits teachers. Teachers who develop positive relationships with students are more likely to experience joy (versus anxiety) in the classroom. This session will focus on building relationships with students and enjoying our time in the classroom with them, drawing from my own experiences as a post-secondary (and secondary) teacher. Participants will leave with several concrete—and easy-to-implement!—strategies to help deepen connections with students regardless of field or discipline. We will also dedicate time for strategy sharing among participants. Please come prepared to talk about strategies that have worked for you.
