This Empowering Educators workshop is a joint learning experience that offers a unique opportunity for educators and students to explore together positive strategies of a strength-based teaching practice. Teachers are encouraged to bring a student interested in learning about a strength-based mindset with them to the workshop – for the purposes of increasing application, building positive relationships and holding intergenerational dialogue.
Participants will be asked to complete a personal Strengths Finders survey that will identify their strengths. Survey access codes will be provided upon confirmed registration. Survey results will be explored in depth within the workshop.
A strength-based teaching approach seeks to understand and develop the strengths and capabilities of individual teachers and students in ways that can transform the lives of youth in positive ways. Participants will be invited into an inquisitive exploration of the power of positive psychology and strength-based classroom design and practices which support and appreciate the intrinsic nature of each person.
Priority Registration Deadline: October 1, 2017
