Behaviour for Learning and Engaging the Disenfranchised (Webinar)

This webinar focuses on behaviour for learning and the importance of early intervention in identifying and engaging students who are disengaged. Attendees will be introduced to how a disengaged student can become disenfranchised, and the difficulties teachers face in reengaging them in their learning.


The aims of this webinar are:

  • To explain the issue of learner identity as it impacts dance education.
  • To discuss ways in which to establish an empowered learner identity among the disenfranchised which benefits learners and dance teachers.
  • To demonstrate the importance of social partnerships in learning within a dance context.
  • To develop innovative ways of supporting the re engagement of disenfranchised learners in dance education.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the relevance of developing and maintaining learner identity among the disenfranchised
  • Critically analyse perspectives of learning that support the re engagement of disenfranchised learners in dance education
  • Design teaching and learning strategies that benefit disenfranchised learners.
