Promoting Resilience in Higher Education

Module T

Taking initiative and the NQS

For our Eearly Years students,  we focus on the importance of resilience and functionality, and problem-solving strategies.  Potential class / forum discussion topics include:

  • reflection on one student and having multiple solutions versus being reactionary and having no Plan B. This involves self-regulation;
  • consideration of how Early Years teachers engage with families when lacking confidence, including the conversations with parents at drop-off and pick-up, and respectful dialogue with mentors and families; 
  • conflict resolution skills which include problem solving ability, identifying solutions and alternatives, being able to be planned and proactive rather than reactive, and being flexible rather than having a fixed response.
