If you are to teach successfully in any setting, formal or informal, you must have the circumstances that make it possible for you to teach and your participants to learn. These circumstances are set by you and do not just happen by chance. Developing a group management or discipline plan is every bit as necessary as your lesson plan; without it, the participants will not acquire anything from your program and will become disruptive. Social and emotional learning is the new way of thinking about group management as old discipline approaches are found to be less effective. By the end, you will come away with starting your journey to a better way of connecting with your participants and being able to handle any group management issue that may arise.

About the EENC Webinar SeriesThanks to our amazing donors this spring, EENC is launching a webinar series to help environmental educators continue to build skills as we all negotiate the new normal with COVID-19. Throughout the series, we hope to cover a wide range of topics. Webinars may focus on lesson plans, curricula development, technology and virtual learning, naturalist skills/knowledge, educator self-care or environmental education operations such as communications, strategic planning for your program/department, risk management, or equity and inclusion.
Webinar registration is free and open to anyone to attend, but is limited to 100 participants.
Webinar will qualify for Criteria III and continuing education for NC DEQ EE Certificate.
A recording of the webinar will be sent to attendees afterward. It will also be posted on EENC's members-only page - so if you're an EENC member and not able to attend during the scheduled time, no need to register!
