Description: Creating a More Positive Learning Environment
Learning encompasses three broad domains - knowledge, behaviors and attitudes.  When we create a positive learning environment for learning, we set the conditions for students to move  through a range of behaviors in each domain, from simple to increasingly complex, until they achieve mastery of course learning outcomes.  Participants in the workshop will have an opportunity to apply the principles of developing a positive environment.

* Adjunct faculty will be compensated at a rate of $20.00/hour upon successful completion of the workshop.  While you are welcome to take a workshop more than once, CTD can only compensate adjunct faculty for the first time that they take one of these workshops.


 As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the  contradictory, even paradoxical nature of education
  • Apply the Law of Service to psychological, instructional and physical learning environments to enhance the learning process
  • Explain the importance of clear and effective communication in the educational process
  • Differentiate between three educational climates
  • Analyze and evaluate various suggestions and innovations for improving the educational climate.
  • Describe the challenges as well as the innovations opportunities of diversity in providing effective learning
