How Do I Create a Climate for Learning in My Classroom?
We’ve all encountered “toxic” learning environments–apathetic students, disillusioned faculty, an entire roomful of people waiting for class to just end, already.
But of course, that’s far from what you (or your students) really want.
You want a robust, positive learning environment, in which everyone understands and appreciates why they’re spending time together.
If you have twenty minutes, you can learn how to promote exactly that sort of environment. We will help you transform a classroom from hum-drum to humming in no time flat.
In this idea-filled presentation, you’ll learn from Maryellen Weimer, Ph.D., consultant, editor of The Teaching Professor and professor emerita at Penn State-Berks.
She shares valuable concepts you can put to work right away in every class.
In just 20 minutes, you’ll discover:
- How positive classroom climates are created
- Who creates them
- How they’re maintained
- Specific ways you can contribute
- How you can help your students contribute
- The “pet peeves” of both faculty and students, and how to overcome them
- What constitutes a memorable, positive experience for students and faculty alike
A small investment of your time will show you how to create a collaborative, engaged classroom experience that everyone will appreciate.
