Online Courses:

Improving Discourse with Students, Colleagues, and Administrators

This course is designed to improve relationships through communication skills that decrease stress and increase success. Based on the book, Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most, by Douglas Stone, Bruce Patton, & Sheila Heen, this course will focus on interpreting what is said in conversations, managing emotions, and staying balanced and focused despite how the other person responds.

As educators, we are often involved in "difficult" conversations with students, parents, colleagues, or administrators. This course offers practical strategies to ensure all parties involved will resolve issues in an amicable manner.

Course Description

This course offers teachers a variety of practical strategies to create a cooperative and respectful classroom environment. Studies indicate that encouraging good behavior and discouraging misbehavior by offering rewards and punishments has very few benefits and rarely changes behavior. When teachers empower students to address and correct misbehavior, it has a lasting impact. Topics included in this online course are: restorative practices, structures that support restorative practices, creating a mindset for restorative practices, and concrete examples for all grade levels that bring out the best in all students.
