What are the Managing Student Behaviour modules?

A training program has been developed by the Office of Student Success to guide faculty staff with managing student behaviour where it interferes with or interrupts the normal educational and business functions of the University.

The Managing Student Behaviour training program is a self-enrolling unit on LEO which contains six focused modules, including a module on managing a student threatening self-harm (with a direct link to the Policy and Procedure on Managing a Student Threatening Self-Harm).

The modules are:

  1. Understanding Behaviour of Concern
  2. Maintaining Professional Boundaries while Responding to Students
  3. Understanding ACU Policies
  4. Understanding the Role of an Educational Inclusion Plan (EIP)
  5. Managing Students at Risk of Self-Harm/Suicide through the Student Behaviour – Response Plan
  6. Scenarios – Applying Knowledge to Manage a Range of Student Behaviour.

Whilst it is encouraged that staff work through all of the modules, there is the option to complete each module separately. A print version of the presentation is also available.
