Sam Cutri – Lecturer – SAE Creative Media Institute, Perth

Since early 2016, Navitas teachers globally have participated in more than 18,000 hours of professional development in courses run by L&T Services.

Three months after the end of their course, participants are asked to consider what changes they have made to their practice. The Strategy Sessions series invites those teachers to share a learning and teaching challenge and their strategies and learnings from the process.

Each session includes Q&A discussion with the presenter and other attendees to help you connect with others in the learning and teaching community.

How do you foster meaningful student-teacher relationships at the start of the term? The Building Students Relationships (BSR) PD workshop focusses on getting to know your students and them understanding you to establish the foundation for a trusting relationship. In my experience, this connection and commitment to each other enables learning to just happen.

Sam Cutri has over 15 years of learning and teaching experience in higher education and a proven track record in this practice, with improvements in engagement and retention rates. In this event he will look at innovative strategies and techniques to building student-teacher relationships. When applied early with a new cohort, this can change the way students relate with their lecturers, peers and college, build confidence and a sense of belonging.
