Teacher Resilience: Developing this Super Power

Recorded: February 01, 2023

Teacher resilience is a new area of research that looks at what sustains and enables teachers to thrive rather than survive in the profession. This presentation discusses individual risk factors (e.g. motivation), contextual factors (e.g. workload) and includes strategies to develop teacher resilience using protective factors (e.g. mentorship). Teacher resilience means that teachers stay in the ELT field longer, remain motivated and with a sense of competence, confidence and coping skills.

In this session, you will learn:

  1. how key individual risk factors such as self-belief and confidence impede teacher resilience
  2. how key contextual risk factors such as workload and classroom management hinder teacher resilience
  3. protective strategies and interventions to develop your resilience in order to sustain one’s capacity to teach to their best
