NEW: THE ELEPHANT IN THE CLASSROOM
“The Elephant in the Classroom” is an expert-driven Professional Development course specifically addressing the unique situation we face launching into the new year or new phase of schooling influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic: our need for connection and community, our worries, our grief over losses of all kinds and our hopes and opportunities for growth as we move forward together.
Our Partner Create Positive created this course to be self paced, short, concise and packed with hands-on information and practical tips that you can put to use directly in your staff rooms and classrooms. It is a mental health education programme – not counseling – to equip you with tools to address the elephant. There is limited access on a first come, first serve basis. You can take this course at any time, please contact Create Positive via the website below.
GREAT NEWS: FREE FOR ECIS MEMBERS!
Like you, our team here at CreatePositive had hoped, by now, that the daily impact of COVID-19 on classrooms would have ended and that the work of the recovery phase would be our focus. The reality is that classes around the world continue to be disrupted and dysregulated due to the mental and emotional toll of a global disaster. With that in mind, CreatePositive has extended access to the course which will remain open to educators for as long there is a need and they have offered it free of charge to you, as an ECIS member.
