Event description

Description

Please join the Murdoch School of Education for a seminar presented by Dr Rebecca Saunders, Academic Chair of the Master of Education (Coursework) and Tertiary, Adult and Workplace Education, and registered Tribes Learning Communities (TLC®) District Trainer.

Tribes TLC® is a research-based cooperative learning program, based on the belief that creating a caring culture and emotionally safe learning community in the classroom and throughout a school is an effective way to improve engagement, behaviour, and learning. The Tribes learning program was developed in the late 1970’s by US educator Dr Jeanne Gibbs who was looking for ways to help prevent student behavioural problems, improve academic engagement and performance, and stem the growing number of stressed teachers leaving the profession. Hundreds of schools throughout Australia and thousands more around the world have become Tribes Learning Communities (TLC®), committed to creating afe and caring environments in which students can succeed. Murdoch University has now become the first university in Australia, and among only a few in the world, to offer the Tribes course as an accredited undergraduate and postgraduate unit.

Join Becky in this seminar to:

  • Discover how Tribes learning environments are created and sustained by the four Tribes Agreements of attentive listening, appreciation/no put-downs, the right to pass, and mutual respect;
  • Explore the twelve group Collaborative Skills that enable students to work cohesively together in long-term groups or Tribes;
  • Learn how to apply the Tribes Process of presenting self, inclusion and community;
  • Examine the research-base supporting Tribes, based on human resilience, relationship building, positive expectations and beliefs, and opportunities for equal participation and contribution.
  • Hear how about the Tribes TLC® Courses and professional development for pre and in-service teachers and the Murdoch summer school offerings for teachers in 2018.
