Title: Bad or Sad? Beat the Imposter Syndrome in your Classroom
Presenter: Manitsa Natasa
This session will look at ways to encourage your students and build up their self-esteem through teaching techniques which will be presented.
“Low self-esteem is like driving through life with your hand brake on” – Maxwell Maltz
What are these agonized self-doubt, dark thoughts appearing in the middle of the night? Is the thought of failing making you want to give up? Well, just a little bit of failure could be the new success. After all, it’s all about self-confidence, and that is something you learn to build up because the challenging world of business, studies, expectations, and life, in general, can easily deflate it.
In this workshop, we will have a look at what’s causing this “bad teacher/student self-doubt epidemic” and what we can do to help boost self-confidence, through teaching techniques that at the same time enhance language learning.
