This learning event is right for you if you are a teacher or school leader interested in learning more about how to support students to build habits of success
'Most days, most lessons, we want students to do something different: try harder, use a different technique, do their homework, stop shouting out. We try to make this happen by motivating students and helping them to self-regulate – but when we run out of energy and enthusiasm, we tend to turn to reward and punishment.' says Harry Fletcher-Wood.
In this webinar Harry will introduce the evidence and strategies from behavioural science, and show how they can be applied to help students build habits of success. He will discuss five big challenges to getting students learning - including how to motivate them, and how to help them stick with changes. It will include practical examples and time for questions.
