Episode 24: Julia Skinner: Overcoming reluctance to engage
Make Learners Work for You
Engaging learners whose mindset is entrenched with reluctance requires an arsenal of leadership and teaching strategies. But reluctance is not a phenomenon that is confined to the classroom. This negative force permeates every level of the school hierarchy. School leaders, Heads of Department and teachers alike, regularly encounter reluctance when introducing new teaching and learning concepts and initiatives. But how do you minimise reluctance and avoid wasting precious energy? Julia Skinner, former Headteacher and now founder of the 100 Word Challenge, understands the enormity of the challenge and has developed tools to decipher the potency of reluctance.
Together Julia and I discuss the tools to overcome reluctance to engage.
- Deciphering reluctance to engage
- Identifying positive wizards and using them to your advantage
- Building relationships and effective communication
