Managing Behaviour for Learning

This course is designed to help new teachers to transform their classroom by making small shifts in their own behaviour.  This material is free, and has been developed by the National STEM Learning Centre as part of their suite of high impact professional development for teachers of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

However, it will still be of value and interest to all Primary and Secondary teachers.

Getting Behaviour Right – NUT Course

 Clearly positive behaviour management is essential to high-quality teaching and learning. We believe that all teachers need to develop a wide-range of skills to positively manage behaviour.

Clearly positive behaviour management is essential to high-quality teaching and learning. We believe that all teachers need to develop a wide-range of skills to positively manage behaviour. We also believe that there is no easy box of magic tricks – rather that as a teacher you would benefit from a solid grounding in behaviour theory and, more importantly, how to put those theories into a context that allows you to build positive relationships with children.

To this end, the NUT are offering a ‘Getting Behaviour Right‘ course in October.

Teachers Media and Behaviour

Teachers Media have a series guidance materials and  useful videos offering advice on behaviour management.

These focus on a whole range of areas such as movement, praise and groups and strategies to help fidgety students learn.

These are mainly discussions with  Sue Cowley and John Bayley; what Teachers Media are rather spectacularly calling “behaviour guru’s“.

The videos and guidance information was originally created for Teachers TV some years ago. It is far from ground-breaking, but remains useful – particularly the videos where you get to see and hear the teachers reactions and progress following the advice.

Teachers Media are collecting similar videos and written guidance inside their ‘Behaviour Hub‘. With a good range of focus on both Primary and Secondary. Useful, popular… if a little limited.
