If you experience any of these disruptive behaviors in your classroom, this webinar is for you:
arguing over test scores, bringing a child to class, talking or texting during class, loud debate, swearing, back-talking, misuse of laptop, phones ringing, smelling of alcohol and drugs on a student, comments about professor’s teaching style, leaving class early, eating in class, gathering up material before class ends, sleeping, routine tardiness, poor personal hygiene, speaking without being recognized, threatening students or other faculty, harassing.
Managed well, these behaviors are opportunities to teach the student appropriate skills to be academically and professionally successful. Managed poorly, these behaviors can lead to a poor learning environment for all students, potential violence in the classroom, professors being unmotivated to teach, and even low performance evaluations.
This practical session is designed for new and experienced faculty members who are looking for new tools to manage difficult student situations in their classrooms. The program will demonstrate techniques to redirect, manage, and calm the disruptive students. The presenter will focus on the techniques of motivational interviewing to offer faculty members an underlying theory and clear examples of how to effectively and appropriately address today’s classroom problems.
