Free Online Course on ‘Bullying at Schools and Teachers’ Response to It’

Course Queensland University of Technology (QUT)

Opportunity Description

Course introduction

This course is developed by the Queensland University of Technology, which will help you recognize different types of bullying and helpful strategies to respond to students.

Notwithstanding being encouraged to tell a teacher if they’re being bullied at school, children can be reluctant to report it. Therefore, teachers need to understand the risks a child experiences before and after telling an adult that they’ve been bullied.

Here, you will explore your own attitudes to bullying and the most appropriate ways to react. Additionally, you will use research-based insights to help you understand the intricate nature of bullying in schools. Upon completion of this course, you will have learned strategies to help decrease bullying in your own school and classroom.
