What to expect from a PD Course
Professional development and learning help teachers to grow in their professional practice. Completing PD helps teachers keep up to date with relevant content, skills and pedagogy and supports their professional growth.
Research shows effective professional learning should:
- be content-focused
- be of a sustained duration
- recognise the experience and prior knowledge of learners
- demonstrate coherence
- be job-embedded and/or provide opportunities for transference of learning
- model effective practice
- involve active collaboration
- include opportunities for feedback and reflection.
There has never been a more urgent need for extra support and tools to help navigate and manage the ever-increasing demands being placed on teachers, and the rise of mental health issues among their students.
A Karma Classroom workshop is an evidence-based course that provides you with the most up-to-date information and practical strategies to support the mental and physical health and wellbeing of your students and yourself.
- Gain an understanding of how to use yoga, breath and mindfulness as tools to help your students focus, de-stress and feel more positive.
- Learn how to use yoga, breath and mindfulness to nourish yourself and to bring your best self to school each day.
- Understand how the mind and body are connected and how these impact learning and development.
- Learn how to create a calm and relaxed environment in your classroom in as little as 5 minutes a day.
- Weave these wellbeing tools into your class at any time during the day and your students will begin to look forward to their Peace Pause.
- Better manage classroom disruptions and behavioural outbursts.
- Practical strategies to support your students with their mental and physical health.
- Cultivate good posture in yourself and your students to promote better flexibility and breathing.
