Building relationships with students is crucial to their ability to learn in both remote or traditional classrooms. Building UDL lessons, culture, and climate for ALL students is the goal. Knowing how to create effective relationships and a classroom community is just one step on the UDL journey.
This course will provide the why, what, and how of building relationships to assure that the teacher-student relationship is strong in order to face barriers together. We will examine how the involvement of students providing feedback and exploration of trauma-informed teaching will springboard your profession and add many strategies to your teaching toolbox along the way.
Learn how to incorporate various relationship-building strategies to fit the needs of ALL students by assessing strengths and weaknesses to determine if current practices are allies or obstacles, using student feedback to improve one’s teaching practice, and exploring why building effective relationships are necessary to improve teaching practices and to guide the delivery of instruction.
Design and create UDL products (for use in remote and/or traditional settings) that have a strong foundation of relationship-building interwoven throughout to remove barriers and establish a partnership with people in their learning environment.
Understand how traumatic experiences affect students’ ability to learn as well as developing strategies and techniques to improve educational outcomes for ALL students.
