Student Behaviour & Classroom Management Masterclass

Practical strategies to create safe, calm & orderly classrooms

Australia has some of the most disruptive classrooms in the world. Safe, ordered and positive learning environments are a foundation for learning. This workshop will explore the current national focus on behaviour, the ‘why’ of behaviour based on psychology and neuroscience and then immerse attendees in the strategies and practices that work in our classrooms. 

Discover why teaching behaviour is an essential ingredient for providing all students with an equal opportunity to excel and how the application of consistent routines is a recipe to achieve this. This workshop will highlight Classroom Mastery, a current approach to professional learning used across Australian schools to develop consistent classroom practices and a school wide behaviour curriculum.


Why attend

Develop a contemporary understanding of student behaviour grounded in evidence-based practices.

Explore how the elements of culture: beliefs, values, norms, routines & rules, interact to shape the school & classroom environment.

Understand the essential skills for effective classroom management.

Leave with practical evidence-based strategies to use in your classroom & that can be applied as a whole-of-school approach.
