Improve your Non-Verbal Communication competence for effective classroom management & positive teaching

Course description

Course overview and purpose:
Teachers need a collection of practical strategies to manage effectively and authoritatively the various educational and didactic requests of the class. Every teacher has certainly his own spontaneous plan of action to approach the classroom. The main purpose of this kind of course consists in making participants aware of their instinctual resources, organizing them in a systematic way and to learn new didactic and communication strategies. Research shows that 80% of the teacher communication in the classroom is non-verbal. Non- verbal signals are more powerful and effective than verbal message. Because students are even more influenced by the teacher’s non- verbal behaviours than by what the teacher says, teachers do not want a mismatch between their body language and their words. The course focuses on the systematic and effective use of eye contact, voice patterns and body language in the classroom. In this way a constructive educational environment can be created in order to establish positive relationships, which lead to increase students’ achievement.

Learning outcomes:

  • Teachers have the opportunity to understand, to develop awareness and to organize what they often do intuitively in the classroom.
  • Teachers are allowed to concentrate on teaching thanks to decreased time spent in disciplining.
  • Teachers learn how to systematically use non-verbal patterns to develop efficacy in curricular teaching and to capture and to hold the attention of the class.
  • Teachers have a model for understanding group dynamics and for keeping groups cohesive and cooperatives.
  • Teachers develop the ability to create an emotional atmosphere that increases learning.
