EDST 498E: Support des étudiants et des communautés d’apprentissage à travers des pratiques de gestion progressives de la classe

July 27 – August 14 (Monday to Thursday*)   1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

*with the exception of the week of August 3, where classes will run Tuesday to Friday instead


Sujets essentiels à aborder: Organisation des classes, Discipline et gestion concentrés sur le savoir, compétences et dispositions à créer et maintenir un environnement sain et de soutient pour l’apprentissage des élèves. Emphase sur l’apprentissage à propos des élèves, encourager l’implication des parents et de leur support, compréhension des multiples facteurs influençant le comportement, utiliser le personnel de support, établir des procédures qui ont pour but d’utiliser le temps d’enseignement efficacement et développant un plan de discipline basé sur la recherche et de l’éducation philosophique personnel.

Le but de ce cours est d’encourager les enseignants à tirer une variété d’encadrement théoriques (ex : constructivité, comportement théorique, théorie écologique, développement cognitif théorique, apprentissage social théorique, etc.) pour guider leurs interactions avec les étudiants et leurs pratiques en classe. Il est important pour les enseignants de développer une attitude compétente en organisation car des problèmes autours l’aptitude à gérer sont souvent cités comme la première cause du stress relié au travail par les enseignants ce qui les amènes à quitter leur profession. En addition d’examiner les stratégies proactives et réactives pour aborder le comportement difficile, cette classe vise à examiner comment les enseignants peuvent développer une écoute empathique et active pour réduire les conflits et de mettre en place une atmosphère positive et affective dans les classes comme un moyen d’encourager une aptitude prosociale entre les étudiants.
