Classroom dynamics: teaching a diversity of students

Vak
2021-2022

NB Language spoken in course is Dutch unless English-speaking students participate

Description

Students’ schools and classrooms are their daily learning environments. The social interactions that occur in these environments – including interactions among students and between students and teachers – affect students’ social, emotional, and behavioral functioning. This course focuses on the effects of students’ learning environments on their social / emotional and behavioral functioning in school. The course first focuses on children and youth who experience difficulties with social/ emotional and behavioral functioning in school. Methods for structuring the environment to improve the functioning of these students in school are discussed. The focus then turns to the role of teacher-student interactions in fostering social / emotional and behavioral functioning, by focusing on the consequences of teacher behavior for student behavior and student’s social evaluation by peers.

Registration

NOTE As of the academic year 2021-2022, you must register for all courses in uSis.

You do this twice a year: once for the courses you want to take in semester 1 and once for the courses you want to take in semester 2.

Registration for courses in the first semester is possible from July. The exact date on which the registration starts will be published on the website of the Student Service Center (SSC)

Registration for courses in the first semester is possible from December. The exact date on which the registration starts will be published on the website of the Student Service Center (SSC)

The registration period for all courses closes five calendar days before the start of the course.

By registering for a course you are also automatically registered for the Brightspace module and for the first sit of the exam of that course. Anyone who is not registered for a course therefore does not have access to the Brightspace module and cannot participate in the first sit of the exam of that course.
