Creating a Positive Learning Environment
Motivating student to come to class is a challenge, especially if they do not enjoy being there. One of the best ways to fill the seats in a classroom is to work on building Positive Learning Environments. The resource posted here has a collection of documents and tasks ready to go focussing on course development, classroom strategy, classroom management and professional practice.
The collection of documents on this site, ready to receive my own personal touch based on the needs of my own students, will be an asset in trying to get those seats filled. In the section on classroom management The Centre for Teaching & Learning at Humber focuses on facilitating group works as a means to develop core skills such as critical thinking.
