Behaviour Management

Behaviour management programs have been a key component of the work of the TLN since we began in 1995. They continue to be an important part of our work and an area teachers tell us they need support in.

A teacher's behaviour management strategies are a reflection of their views around students, how learning occurs, the role of families and more recent understandings around brain development. To portray behaviour management as a set of tricks or as disconnected from wider teaching practice is to understate it's significance.

    This is an online only conference.

    Positive Education has made a significant difference to the quality of student learning in many school settings. Broadly based on the principles of Positive Psychology, Positive Education focuses on the emotional health and wellbeing of the students as a pre-requisite for learning. Resilience. Mindfulness. Positive Mindset. Character Strengths. This is the language of Positive Education; this is what prepares students for learning. TLN has some of Australia’s leading theorists and practitioners on Positive Education for this conference.

    This workshop will cover how to identify your Character Strengths, ways to spot strengths in others (improving workplace relationships) and various ways to use this classification to building positive learning partnerships.  It will highlight ways of working with students that capitalise on what they are good at rather than remediate areas of weakness.  It will also highlight how using Character Strengths gives us an opportunity to work with the important developmental stage of identity formation, which students (adolescents in particular) are experiencing, to help them see their identity through positive traits and values, rather than problematic ones.

    or

    1.2  Creating a calm & supportive classroom for all students

    Belinda Webb & Marcelle        Cacciattolo

    Presented by Jane Langley

    The program will look at:

    Creating a safe and supportive learning environment with secondary age students is complex and socially and emotionally demanding of teachers. Expert teachers, who consistently succeed in creating these environments, recognise when individuals 'push their buttons' and trigger responses that amplify inappropriate behaviour. The focus of this workshop is learning those trigger points in yourself and choosing more effective responses. It is also about recognising the importance of a whole school approach and the value of collaboration to achieve positive outcomes.

    • How to identify emotional centred behaviour
    • Helping students identify their own emotions
    • Labelling emotions in a non-confronting way
    • Supporting students to find ways of expressing emotions constructively

    The program will look at:

    The presenter has used the Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) framework with students with physical and intellectual disabilities. An important element of working with any group of students to create a positive learning environment is to analyse the behaviours occurring in the learning space. The presenters will show how they have used PBS to undertake this analysis and improve classroom behaviours.

    People who enrol for this workshop, if they have not already done so should also enrol for the companion workshop 'L758 Positive Behaviour Support – identifying the behaviours you want' on Tuesday 31st October. A recording of that workshop will also appear on the TLN website www.tln.org.au

    This workshop has wide application and could meet the needs of teachers working in primary, secondary or special education settings.
