Promoting Resilience in Higher Education

Module E

Emotions and the NQS

For our Early Years students, we raise issues such as working with children with challenging behaviours and forming relationships with families that are essential in the early childhood context.These situations bring emotions - those of the pre-service teacher, the early childhood teacher, the child, the parents or caregivers and colleagues - into the forefront of tutorial and forum discussions and thinkings.  As such, our students are encouraged to consider quality reflective practice, where our students are seeing this in practice and actively ‘doing it’. This may further link with effective leadership modelling and strategies.
