Have you as as a teacher, ever been concerned about :
A. frequent disruptions in class B. disinterest by certain section of students C. undesirable body language of students D. yourself feeling uncomfortable in a class or E. lacking the confidence to deal with a particular set of students?
Well, if you have experienced any one or more of these situations, then you are at the right place. After doing this course, you are more likely to enjoy going back to your class room equipped with necessary tools and renewed self confidence, to deal with such situations.
Three key statements in Behavior Management.
A. Pro-active approach encourages behavior modification whereas reactive approach leads to resentment"
B. Consistency in your own behavior is the key to success in classroom"
C. Lively classroom promotes good learning environment.
In this course I share with you, interesting and exiting techniques that I have developed and practiced successfully over 30 years to achieve conducive learning environment in class. I will also cover techniques that have been suitably modified for the millennium generation "The Gen-X".
The techniques you will learn are reformative and reinforcing rather than corrective and compelling. Many of the principles and techniques used are the similar to good behavior modification practices, yet these are delivered in a less intense and consistent fashion. Usually, behavior management is applied at the group level by a classroom teacher as a form of behavioral engineering to produce high rates of student work completion and minimize classroom disruption. In addition, greater focus has been placed on building self-control. While behavior management programs can come from a variety of behavioral change theories , the most common practices rely on the use of applied behavior analysis principles such as positive reinforcement and mild punishments (such as response cost and child time out). Behavioral practices such as differential reinforcements are commonly used. Sometimes these are delivered in a token economy or a level system .
As you go through the course will be happy to interact with you though my webinars in Demio (Coach Balasaraswathy) and blog. In fact, as you make good progress I will share good resources with you for assisting you in classroom. You post your queries on the my Course Board in Udemy.
Lastly, but not the least, the post Coronavirus world is going to be different form what is existing today. We can expect some disruption in education industry. Students and children may go through palpable behavioral changes owing to prolonged lock down periods and exposure to online learning. As a resultant, the unpredictability factor in classroom behavior is likely to be high. Hence, this course on Behavior Management will come to you handy in addressing such unpredictable patterns of behavior. At this stage, I am not be in a position to predict new patterns of student behavior hence haven't specifically covered it in my lectures. However, me and my team of psychologists are working on it. We shall attempt share our findings and possible solutions/techniques in due course with you on individual basis in future.
Best wishes for the course. Hope you will enjoy doing this course as much as enjoyed creating it for you.
