Developing Student Self-efficacy for Motivation and Achievement


Some of the most effective strategies in enhancing student achievement lie within the student themselves. In this workshop, we will explore one such strategy that has the potential to more than double the rate of learning: student self-efficacy. High self-efficacy is essential if a student is to succeed during and beyond their school years. Efficacy is not something that we are born with, but it is something that we, as teachers, have the power to influence. In this session, we will explore the sources of efficacy in the classroom and ways in which we can utilise these to help our students become motivated and confident in their learning and achievements.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
