Incorporating an experience points system into classrooms provides an opportunity for students to analyze their behaviors in ways that are specific to their current learning experiences. For educators, it alleviates some of the challenges involved in classroom management and the question of whether classroom management practices (such as attendance, participation, or late work) can or should impact students' grades in a course. In this webinar, participants explore the experience point approach to classroom management and discuss its benefits and challenges. Finally, participants are provided with three template activities to get started with the experience point approach to classroom management.
Learners will have the option to earn a certificate of attendance or a certificate with CEUs upon completion of the webinar. To earn a certificate with CEUs, the learner must successfully pass the learning assessment with a score of 80% or higher. All learners must complete the webinar evaluation to earn credentials.
The duration of this webinar is one hour, which equates to 0.1 Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
