Brilliant Strategies for Early Career Teachers

Targeted at educators in the first few years of teaching or those who are returning to the classroom after a long break, this webinar is a single day event for addressing all the challenges of starting out. It explores practical strategies for addressing off-task behaviour, honing your instructional practice, dealing with the workload demands and seeking out effective support from your colleagues.

By the end of the day, you will have:

  • Investigated a wide array of classroom management techniques, with particular attention paid to dealing with interruptions, pivoting around arguments and defusing conflict.
  • Identified teacher habits and class routines for efficiently managing the daily demands of a busy classroom.
  • Reviewed small changes of practice that can substantially improve your instruction and how you question and respond to your students.
  • Learn fast and effective feedback techniques for improving your students work while also reducing your correction load.
  • Explored how to seek out school-level support and the nuances of finding and getting the most out of potential mentors.
