Our annual Faculty PD Day is coming up soon! We're looking for faculty to present topics that highlight your innovative teaching approaches and/or practices.
Our winter semester PD Day takes place on February 27 and will be featuring a keynote by Dr. Stuart Shanker, a highly renowned psychologist from York University. Dr. Shanker will speak about self-regulation and how it can support our students' mental health, resilience, and the development of learning experiences.
With recent advances in developmental neuroscience, attitudes toward maximizing the educational potential of every student are dramatically shifting. Research shows that the better students can self-regulate, the more likely they are to master more complex skills and concepts.
But what is self-regulation exactly? How does it develop and why do some students struggle with it more than others? Most importantly, what can we as teachers, parents, and caregivers do to better facilitate its development?
