Challenging behavioursBehaviours that pose challenges to adult educators can impact on a learner’s capacity to engage. Developing relationships that lead to positive outcomes,can form the basis for helping adults learn how to learn.

In order for adult educators to create safe learning environments, it is necessary to understand what motivates these challenging behaviours. If we understand these causes, we can better meet the needs of all students.

This webinar shares your experiences of challenging classroom behaviours, unpacks what gives rise to them, and repacks them with management strategies that support change.
