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.
Surely, teaching is more than technique. Educators exhibit
compassion for learning and an enthusiasm for the progress of their
students. If not the heart of teaching, technique is the muscle,
the means of accomplishing educational goals and learning outcomes.
This module explores a vast range of educational theory and application
to classroom teachers as they develop their own personal plans for
