Abstract

This three module workshop delivers strategies for improving classroom experiences for teachers and students. The topics covered in this workshop are the following: classroom management through the use of behavior alteration techniques and messages, teacher and student misbehaviors, and classroom discussion methods. Research has shown that by using certain techniques teachers can positively impact student learning and behaviors. The modules will help to increase instructor awareness of methods for improving student learning and classroom environments. Research has shown that certain teacher behaviors improve classroom climate and enhance student learning and student behaviors. This workshop will cover three areas that significantly contribute to a more positive experience in the classroom for both students and teachers. The workshop modules will cover power and influence in the classroom through the use of behavior alteration techniques (BATS) and behavior alteration messages (BAMS), understanding teacher misbehaviors in the classroom, and techniques for classroom discussions. Each module has a set of clear objectives for the participants. When the workshop is complete, each participant will have learned very specific techniques in classroom management they can immediately apply to their own teaching situations. All recommended techniques will be based on peer-reviewed published literature, the success of which has been supported by scientific research undertaken specifically for the educational community.
