Bending, Not Breaking: Flexible Approaches to Classroom Management (Webinar)

This webinar will be based around a discussion on effective classroom management and behaviour management strategies. Some of the issues to be explored are identification and connection with the individual needs of students while at the same time setting boundaries of behaviour expectations. The webinar will also examine some of the common behavioural needs of students, and consider some strategies which might be implemented in addressing these needs. Attendees will be encouraged to consider their own experiences in dealing with classroom management issues and consider, in hindsight, how the issues may have been dealt with differently.


The aims of this webinar are:

  • To discuss and examine effective classroom management
  • To develop classroom management techniques for teaching (both teachers and support staff)
  • To critically reflect upon teaching strategies to support effective classroom management

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this webinar, participants will

  • Gain a deeper understanding of behaviour management strategies
  • Critically reflect upon and discuss behaviour management experiences and solutions
  • Explore practical behaviour management solutions
  • Evaluate the risks and benefits of various behaviour management strategies
