Today is RUOK? Day, a national day of action dedicated to reminding everyone to check in on their loved ones and ask ‘Are you OK?’ In today’s Behaviour Management episode, we’re joined by Professor Fiona Brooks from the University of Technology Sydney to discuss the relationship between mental health, wellbeing and student behaviour at school.
Teachers are asked to respond to new and uncertain situations all the time – from keeping abreast of subject knowledge updates to making quick pivots when a lesson isn’t quite going to plan. Dr Rebecca Collie joins us in this podcast episode to discuss teacher adaptability.

Earlier this year, Phil Beadle spent a month in Australia conducting one-day workshops to share his expertise in literacy and behaviour management with Australian educators. In his first contribution for Teacher, he shares his response to the question he was asked most while on tour.
