The Earlybird Deadline has been extended to April 29.
Our goal as educators is to empower our students to “think smart”. One way to achieve this goal is to help students understand their own learning brains. The more they can build the self-regulation skills they need, the more effectively they will succeed in school and in life. We are at an exciting time in education where we understand so much more about how the brain learns and what we can do to support students’ developing minds and self –regulation skills. This “live it to learn it” workshop will help teachers blend brain-based theory with doable classroom practices
The main goal of the workshop is to help classroom teachers grow elementary and secondary students who have ownership and responsibility for their own learning. You will leave this session with a better understanding of the learning brain and practical strategies you can use in your classroom and school.
What is Self-Regulation?
† The Alberta College of Social Workers (ACSW) and the Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Social Workers (NLASW) accept CPA-approved CEUs.
* Participants will receive a certificate of completion after every workshop. Workshops are pre-approved for 5.5 or 6 credits per day unless otherwise specified.
