More Information: 1-Day Classbuilding and Teambuilding Workshop

Why do teachers who do more teambuilding and classbuilding obtain higher academic scores? Teambuilding and Classbuilding create the conditions for learning. When students meet their needs for security and belonging, they are free to engage in higher-level learning. Disruptions and discipline problems decrease, speeding up your teaching and student learning.

When students feel safe, known, respected and appreciated they enjoy school more and are more prepared to work hard and learn well.

Come and learn how to create the appropriate context to nurture learning. Provide more nutrients for the brain with energising classbuilders. Build productive learning teams with a range of teambuilders.

Reduce the psychological and emotional distance between classmates and instill in students a sense of belonging. Invest a day focusing on how to create a caring, cooperative context for learning and reap the benefits for your entire teaching career.

  • Create a caring, cooperative classroom through energising classbuilding activities.
  • Make your lessons come alive; use strategies to reach all your students
  • Reduce the achievement gap; Foster belonging for students of all ability levels
  • Establish a classroom environment where everyone wants to be – including you!

More Information: 1-Day Brain-Friendly Teaching Workshop

Surprising new brain imaging techniques give us new windows into real-time brain functioning. For the first time, we can actually view which parts of the brain are engaged as we use different instructional strategies. Through this technology and other advances in brain science, there is an emerging understanding of which teaching methods best align with how the brain best learns.

Learn more about how the brain actually learns and which instructional strategies are brain-friendly and which are not. Find teaching easier and far more effective as you adopt proven brain-friendly structures!
