THE SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY OF (NOT) CHANGING THE WORLD: PROMOTING CIVIC ENGAGEMENT IN THE CLASSROOM AND BEYOND

STAFF IN PRIMARY, MIDDLE AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS INCLUDING LEADERSHIP, WELLBEING COORDINATORS, COUNSELLORS, AND CLASSROOM TEACHERS - TWILIGHT SESSION

PRESENTED BY DR EMMA THOMAS, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF PSYCHOLOGY

Nelson Mandela famously observed that education is the most powerful weapon that you can use to change the world. But how can world changing behaviours be fostered directly, in the classroom? In this workshop we will consider the mechanics of how to promote civic engagement in the classroom and beyond. The workshop will be interactive and will focus on providing evidence-based approaches to understanding and promoting civic engagement (including volunteerism and activism). This workshop is intended for school staff working with students, or those involved in supporting student wellbeing or student civic engagement.

Learning outcomes for this workshop include:

  • An understanding of the psychological processes through which people engage with social justice issues and develop a “civic identity”
  • Practical strategies for the teaching of social issues to promote civic engagement in the classroom and beyond
  • Awareness of how civic engagement can foster personal wellbeing for your students

PRESENTED BY LARA LANG AND CATHERINE O'HALLORAN, EXPERT SCIENCE TEACHERS AND CO-FOUNDERS OF THE STEMABLE PROJECT

This workshop is intended for all school staff working with students or involved in planning, program or policy development for STEM subjects. The workshop will provide information about designing a contemporary curriculum that is Future Focused. We will look at the key capabilities essential for all students as we enter the transition into the fourth industrial revolution, and how STEM teaching and learning is integral to the development of these skills. The workshop will unpack the why and how of these key skills, including problem solving, critical and creative thinking, collaboration, embedded literacy and numeracy and communication. This workshop will allow participants to explore, discuss and share strategies and ideas about the following key aspects:

  • What is the implication of the fourth industrial revolution on the future of education
  • Why are key skills, capabilities and dispositions for today’s students so important?
  • What are the opportunities inherent in STEM subjects and pedagogy for the development of these key skills
  • How can you as educators and leaders facilitate the authentic integration of these skills in to your teaching and learning plans?

BEHAVIOUR MANAGEMENT DOES NOT WORK: WHY THE STRATEGIES YOU'VE TRIED AREN'T WORKING, AND WHAT YOU CAN DO INSTEAD

ALL STAFF IN JUNIOR PRIMARY, PRIMARY, SECONDARY SCHOOL AND SPECIAL EDUCATION INCLUDING LEADERSHIP, COUNSELLORS, WELFARE COORDINATORS, CLASSROOM TEACHERS AND SUPPORT STAFF

PRESENTED BY DR DAVID ARMSTRONG, CHILD AND ADOLESCENT BEHAVIOUR RESEARCH SPECIALIST, INTERNATIONAL AUTHOR AND TEACHER

This workshop is intended for all school staff working with students or involved in planning, program or policy development for student welfare, and will explain why managing behaviour is an outdated and unhelpful concept for helping children and young people succeed in school. The workshop will provide you with ethical and effective alternatives to behaviour management: strategies to help prevent problem behaviours by students and reduce the severity of negative behaviours should they occur. This workshop calls on two key messages from research about behaviour in schools: Teach Knowledge & Teacher Practice.

Attendees are asked to bring two student cases (student A and Student B) to consider in this workshop. Attendees will also be given vignettes of students with a range of behaviours where they can apply and practise evidence-based strategies which respond to student conduct. This interactive day features an extended Q&A session with expert input by Dr David Armstrong.

Learning outcomes for this workshop include:

  • Improved knowledge of what drives problem behaviours by students with flow-on benefits for professional practice i.e. enhanced ability to select the most appropriate, proportional response in practice, including referral to specialist services
  • Insight into evidence-based, problem solving methods for understanding behaviour by children and adolescents and space to practise these skills/knowledge with expert guidance from Dr David Armstrong
  • Improved knowledge about how disability, behaviour and mental health overlap and lead to increased risk of exclusion or challenging behaviour, with insight into what can be done to mitigate these risks and improve student welfare and productivity
  • Enhanced awareness that student behaviour and teacher behaviour are two sides of the same coin: attendees will consider their own psychological welfare in responding to student behaviour and how to protect from burnout over the long term
