Capacity Series: The Neuroscience behind effective youth engagement | Ballarat

October 15, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

‘The Capacity Building Series was an opportunity to clarify my thoughts about emotional intelligence. (The workshop highlighted) the importance of working with all levels of education: parents, students, community.’ – Workshop Participant

Delivered in partnership with the Government of Victoria’s Advance program, Duke of Ed Victoria is proud to bring back, the 2015 series of Capacity Building Workshops for anyone working in the space of youth development.

How can we apply this to the classroom to help us create thriving environments for ourselves and young people?

  • Belief and connections.

How can you use techniques like storytelling to build meaning and purpose into any setting?

  • Voice and decision making.

How can I effectively develop quality questions to bring a group together and ensure everyone has strong ownership?
