Skip to 0 minutes and 6 seconds Hello. I’m Paul Dix. Behaviour specialist at Pivotal Education. I’m going to show you how to harness the power of your own behaviour to dramatically improve the behaviour of your students. I’m going to show you how routines are central to establishing clear and high expectations of your students and I’m going to show you how to intervene with poor behaviour with techniques that protect you and protect the dignity of your students. I’m going to show you through this course how techniques can benefit your students, how recognition should be central to your classroom or laboratory technique and not reward. How a clear and purposeful learning environment can be established through clear boundaries and how we can deal with tricky customers with real flair.

This means calmer classrooms, less fallout for senior and middle managers and most importantly calmer teachers. It’s run online, and it’s 15 hours of taught time. It’s going to allow you to do some action research in your classroom, in your laboratory. You’re going to be able to develop resources that are useful today, tomorrow and into the future. And most importantly you’re going to develop techniques to use in your context that really work with your students. I look forward to seeing you on the course.
