INSPIRING COURAGE TO EXCEL THROUGH SELF-EFFICACY

Free

with NAPE Programming

Calendar Next available session starts Jul 20, 2020

Self-efficacy and self-confidence are student attributes that teachers and faculty can influence through micro-affirmations. Research has shown that people who maintain a high degree of self-efficacy are more agreeable in trying new tasks and persist with hard work when attempting to tackle difficult problems. In addition, they have greater interest, motivation, and engagement. This online course will prepare educators to build student self-efficacy through intentional micro-affirmations, provide actionable strategies for implementation in the classroom, and offer a turn-key coachable model for helping students build their own self-efficacy. Ultimately, this course empowers and enables educators to inspire courage in their students to excel.

MICROMESSAGING TO REACH AND TEACH EVERY STUDENT

Culture shapes our biases and beliefs about people based on their age, gender, race, language, (dis)ability, or income level, often without our realization. We communicate our biases in our world, often unknowingly, through micromessages. The accumulation of micromessages over time impacts a person’s belief in his or her own ability to be successful in a course, class, college, and career. Through interactive and reflective activities on the power of culture on our interactions with students, this online module will equip educators with specific strategies to support student participation, persistence, engagement and success.

Calendar Next available session starts Jul 20, 2020

Changing the culture of a school is both an exciting time as well as a daunting challenge. It’s often hard to know where to begin as well as who needs to be engaged in the process. NAPE has worked with secondary schools and community colleges to develop and implement a comprehensive, practical, and research-based process for program improvement focused on equity and closing achievement gaps. This one hour course introduces the Program Improvement Process for Equity. A simulation is woven throughout the activities of this course. In this simulation, you’ll lead the PIPE team at a fictional school district and community college as they complete each step of the process. During PIPE, organizations use an Implementation Plan to document their decisions and strategies. In the simulation, you’ll be able to download a sample Implementation Plan as it is updated for each stage of the process
