Webinar: Cornerstones 17: Overcoming the Challenges of Modern Classroom Management – Exploring Student Behaviors

Cindy Williams

Classroom management is one of the greatest challenges of being an instructor, yet most instructors struggle with doing it well. This course, the 17th in Cornerstones: The ABMP Instructor Development Program, looks at how students can act in ways that create obstacles to teaching, to their own learning, and to the learning of others. We take a clear look at student behaviors that are challenging, and the social, cultural, mental, emotional, and physical factors that influence them. Once you complete this course and understand the “why,” watch the companion topic (“Overcoming the Challenges of Modern Classroom Management – Reducing Classroom Disruptions”) for strategies specific to this problem.
