ERASMUS+ KA1 COURSE

Effective Classroom Management

OID: E10185249 

After participating in this Erasmus+ training course, the participants will gain a comprehensive insight into classroom management in general and their own class managing style, thus becoming capable of making improvements in their everyday teaching activity, if necessary. Additionally, they will have the opportunity to practice their English and establish connections with colleagues from other European countries, which might be a starting point for further school partnerships and projects.

Course Objectives

Description of the training event

This course has been designed especially for preschool, primary, and secondary teachers of different subjects, but it could also be helpful for teachers from vocational schools, teacher trainers, and head teachers. The course aims at depicting significant challenges of classroom management nowadays and setting out practical ways of managing the classroom by presenting alternatives to traditional approaches to classroom management. 

Are today’s students different from previous generations? Are teaching and classroom management more difficult than a few decades ago? If yes, in what way and for what reason(s)? If not, why do so many teachers find managing the classroom harder than before and experience so much stress during the school year? Why do so many students dislike or even hate school? Why is it so hard to motivate and gain students’ attention for learning purposes? Are these only present-day problems, or did they exist even when our parents and grandparents were students? 

Through this course, we will answer these and many other impromptu questions which might occur during discussions about classroom management theories and strategies. Starting from a brief review of landmark theories and theorists on discipline/ classroom management, we intend to organize practical activities meant to discover aspects of these theories in landmark movies about teaching and classroom management and everyday teaching life. Thus, the course will also foster an exchange of good practices in classroom management between participants from different European countries.
