Event description

Description

Poor behaviour in schools is a significant factor undermining student achievement. International data suggests behaviour in Australian schools is among the worst in the world, and reviews have found many teachers are not given practical, evidence-based classroom management strategies in initial teacher education courses. Strong, supportive school leadership is crucial. Schools with high standards of behaviour have common practices that can help all schools maintain the orderly, safe culture necessary for quality teaching to take place, optimal learning to occur — and for children to flourish.

Speakers:

Tom Bennett, Director and Founder researchED

Tom has been a teacher in the East End of London for ten years. Currently, he is the Director and founder of researchED, a grass-roots, teacher-led project that aims to make teachers research-literate and pseudo-science proof. He writes for Times Educational Supplement (TES) and TES online and is the author of four books on teacher-training, behaviour management, and educational research. He recently led an independent review for the UK government on student behaviour in English schools and evidence-based strategies for improvement and produced a report called Creating a Culture: How School Leaders Can Optimise Behaviour.

Sue O’Neill, School of Education, UNSW

Dr Sue O’Neill is Lecturer in Special Education and Deputy Director of the Bachelor of Education program at the University of NSW. Her research interests include preparation for classroom management in initial teacher education, and the use of evidence-based classroom management practices, programs and models by pre-service, beginning, and experienced teachers.

Kylie Hedger, Principal of Elizabeth Macarthur High School, Narellan.
