Instructors set the tone in the classroom with their approach to their work and students; through their actions, instructors communicate their character, credibility, and convictions. Research has shown that engagement in today’s classroom requires a shift from traditional pedagogy, indicating that students now respond to how instructors make them feel rather than what they say. This means that in order to be an effective instructor, educators must learn how to connect with their students.
World-renowned leadership expert John C. Maxwell says that if you want to succeed, you must learn how to connect with people. And while it may seem like some folks are just born with it, the fact is anyone can learn how to make every communication an opportunity for a powerful connection. Through interactive discussions, personal reflections, and group activities, workshop participants learn new perspectives, practical tools, and key takeaways that are crucial to the skill of connecting. Participants return to their classrooms ready to implement new action plans and lead with renewed passion and commitment.
