Recognise different types of bullying and helpful ways to respond to students

On this course, you will explore your own attitudes to bullying and the most appropriate ways to respond. You will use research-based insights to help you understand the complex nature of bullying in schools. Upon completion of this course, you will have learnt strategies to help reduce bullying in your own school and classroom.
- Current data on student reporting of bullying
- Research based insights to help educators understand the complexity of bullying
