Course Description

The last two years have emphasised just how important it is to have staff and students with high self-efficacy (and collective efficacy). 

Those with high self-efficacy approach a task with the sense that they can ‘figure it out’; those with low self-efficacy believe there is very little they can do to improve things, particularly if they struggle or fail.

Useful synonyms for self-efficacy include potency and influence; it is also closely related to growth mindset.

the learning pit

This course will explore:

  • Three of the best ways to build students’ self-efficacy (as well as the things to avoid)

  • The relationship between self-efficacy, self-esteem and student independence

  • Strategies to teach students how to learn, including questioning, reflection and thinking skills
