Engaging Today’s Students and Personal Branding
How can we fire up the neurons in the brains of our students and facilitate active listening? These are just some of the things that teachers need to know and this session is based around pedagogy for today’s learner providing practical tips to engage the students and make them want to learn.
The second part of this session will be devoted to the importance of teacher personal branding. Linking it to relationship building and recognising the teacher’s role as essentially as a superhero throughout the lockdown and continued pandemic; the qualities needed for being a teacher have never been put to such a test. You have provided a safe educational space. Teachers must use their special powers to enthuse, to capture the imagination, to entertain and educate all at the same time! School must become a magical place, full of wonder or in other words, the coolest place to be!
This event is suitable for NQTs, RQTs, returners to teaching, or anyone with an interest in educational success for their students.
Jim Roberson, originally from the Bronx, NY, is a former American Football player, author of ‘The Discipline Coach’ and today is an independent education consultant and practicing teacher. We are delighted that Jim will be leading an online workshop for NQTs registered with OTSA in which he will guide us through his approach to building positive relationships with young people, with a focus on how developing your own approach can help to change lives.
