Workshop Description

Have you ever wished you could change your students’ attitudes toward more positive engagement in their learning? YOU CAN! The secret rests in appreciating that all of us have a profound impact upon the emotional state of the students that we engage with every day. Whether interacting with individuals or groups, the neuroscience is clear: The affective domain powerfully impacts student cognition, persistence, motivation, and performance. During this multidimensional, highly-interactive, experiential, and fun workshop, participants explore ways to promote positive, enthusiastic, and engaged collaboration among students. They also explore how to encourage student learning in a manner that maximizes motivation, a sense of inclusion, and equity within the learning environment!

The workshop includes PowerPoint slides, stories, video, breakout room activities, and opportunities for full group discussions, all of which allow participants to interact with each other and process the information in a fast moving and fun format.

Module One:

  • Demonstrate the impact of emotion on learning.
  • Create positive learning outcomes associated with respectful and affirming relationships.
  • Identify, nurture, and develop talents, rather than focus on weaknesses.

Module Two:

  • Understand how positive emotions expand cognition and creativity.
  • Understand how the affective domain profoundly influences persistence and practice compassionate correction.
  • Apply premises behind the “Growth Mindset” and growing intelligence to our learning environments.
