The last two years have emphasised just how important it is to have students (and staff) with high self (and collective efficacy). Those with high self-efficacy approach a task with the sense that they can ‘figure it out’; those with low self-efficacy believe there is very little they can do to improve things, particularly if they struggle or fail. Useful synonyms for self-efficacy include potency and influence; it is also closely related to growth mindset.
These workshops will explore:
Three of the best ways to build students’ self-efficacy (as well as the things to avoid)
The relationship between self-efficacy, self-esteem and student independence
Strategies to teach students how to learn, including questioning, reflection and thinking skills
Watching these videos will give you a sense of the themes and key points that will be covered during your workshop.
