Course Rationale

The effects of a changing society have crept into the classroom, as we witness a sea change in the behaviour of students. The challenges in front of a teacher have snowballed into a multi faceted task. This program will provide participants with an option of choosing from a repertoire of research driven strategies and ideas to institute an environment conducive to learning.  This will also provide a framework for a successful organisation.

Course description

The module is divided into 12 sessions to be covered in 3 days. The topics covered are

1.     Reality Therapy and Choice Theory (W. Glasser)

This will enable teachers to make positive choices by making clear connections between student behaviour and consequences.

Kohns theory criticized extrinsic rewards and motivators and focused on curiosity and intrinsic rewards for learning. Teachers will be able to help students reflect on their own behaviour in a meaningful way and modify actions.

Teachers will become sensitive to the motivational needs of students and try and provide a climate in which a learning community can develop.
