Helping students, lecturers and practitioners in education become the best professionals they can be.

TEAN, the Teacher Education Advancement Network, knows that you value debate with colleagues and benefit from the sharing of ideas. We continue our ‘Let’s talk about …’ series in 2016/17 with the intention of moving forward together towards more consistent (and effective) practice. These debates are intended for those involved in teacher education in HEIs, schools and all other organisations involved in teacher education.

This debate suggests: Let's talk about Behaviour Management

You can join the day in person or by way of a Skype link. Further details below.

This event is relevant from Primary through to FE.

Why it’s a good idea to talk about this: Behaviour management in schools is an area for perennial discussion. There are many theories and talk of ‘easy fixes’ on the one hand and great complexity on the other. Questions are myriad. How is ‘good’ behaviour promoted? What is ‘good’ behaviour? What is ‘bad’ behaviour? What are effective strategies? What about rewards and sanctions? Whose responsibility is behaviour in school? The individual? The school? The senior management? What about ‘low level’ disruption? How can consistency be attained? Is it important how you teach, what you teach, when you teach…? This event aims to give you the opportunity to consider many issues and share ideas and inspirations.

Potential Skype delegates

Potential Skype delegates, please note with care

From TEAN’s perspective, Critical Publishing’s perspective and the perspective of our keynote speaker Sue Wallace, Skype is an opportunity offered to individuals only, not groups. It is therefore not permissible to invite others to join you on the day.

It is also not permissible to record the event in any way for reasons of Intellectual Property Rights and basic courtesy to our keynote speaker.

We strongly advise that there are better, more interesting ways of using what you personally learn from the day with others.
