Course description
Learning is deeply social so it’s no wonder that strong interpersonal relationships and the knowledge that an individual learner is valued, respected, and belongs in a classroom environment is integral to motivated, engaged students. Exploring the question, “what happens to individual students when they lack the feeling of belonging or acceptance?”, participants will describe how a sense of belonging impacts learners' motivation and development of identity. Participants will then explore strategies for creating and strengthening strong interpersonal relationships between teachers and peers and develop a plan for establishing a sense of belonging for every learner.
