Course on Prevention of School Early Leaving

The subject of this course is communication. Besides basic information about communication and rules for conducting conversations, handling difficult conversations will be one vital aspect. How can teachers start a conversation with difficult or truant pupils? How can they prepare for a conversation with parents of absent pupils? Another topic will be the process of a conversation from the greeting to the closing and subsequent documentation and evaluation. How can you determine the process and reach agreements on realistic aims? How can you document and evaluate the outcomes of the meeting in an efficient manner? Furthermore, you will learn something about feedback rules, “I-messages” and nonverbal communication. In addition, special aspects of communication with colleagues and in class will be presented.
