Use psychological safety to improve student outcomes

A psychologically safe learning environment strengthens learning and competency outcomes. Join Chemène for this interactive session that will help VET trainers and instructional designers:

  • clarify what psychological safety is
  • recognise how psychological safety enhances student outcomes and competency attainment
  • identify practical strategies to establish and maintain psychologically safe learning.

Chemène will focus on how to establish and maintain psychological safety in the live, online classroom environment, but ideas shared will be useful to any delivery mode.
