Self-Efficacy: Helping Students Believe They are Capable

Do you wonder how to improve students’ academic achievement, increase motivation, and encourage proper self-regulation? The answer is - by increasing students’ self-efficacy!

Self efficacy is the belief in one’s own ability to achieve a goal. Students with a strong sense of efficacy are more likely to challenge themselves with difficult tasks and be intrinsically motivated.

The workshop will discuss four main resources of self-efficacy, its influence on motivation and self-management skills, and provide engaging and helpful strategies on how to increase students’ self-efficacy in the classroom and through parental involvement at home.
