Resilience in the Classroom is a webinar ONLY – please do not come to the CTE office.
The Resilience in the Classroom training is a 50-minute training that focuses on three major components of resilience—self-compassion, dealing with failure, and coping skills, and how to incorporate these components into the classroom. Resilience is associated with academic success and psychological well-being. This session will help instructors identify how they can strengthen students’ resilience and help them adapt to change and hardships by integrating these core competencies into their curriculum.
