Strategies for Addressing Student Fear in the Classroom

Strategies for Addressing Student Fear in the Classroom | Faculty Development and Support for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Upon setting foot in the classroom at the beginning of the semester, many students experience varying degrees of anxiety or fearfulness. As educators, we often sense nervousness among our pupils as we introduce ourselves and hand out copies of the course syllabus to review. Most students settle in shortly, but some may remain consistently fearful. Is it possible that their high levels of fear negatively affect their ability to learn in the classroom from week to week? In this article, we discuss the role of debilitating fear in some students’ lives and identify ways that educators can help them attain success despite their anxiety.

Book Review: Ten Strategies for Building Community with Technology by Bill Brandon

Book Review: Ten Strategies for Building Community with Technology by Bill  Brandon | Faculty Development and Support for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Times change, and instructional methods change with them. One concept that instructional designers should become
familiar
with is that of the role of community in learning, and the necessity of learners feeling themselves involved in a
community. A
new book takes a strategic look at this approach and provides the necessary background you need to get started.
