    The Confidence workshop in the OCSLD Cs series introduces recent research about strategies for boosting learners' confidence and sets these in the context of enhancing students’ employability prospects.  You will be invited to explore applications for your own disciplinary teaching and Academic Advising.

    • Obtain basic knowledge of Self-Determination Theory (Deci & Ryan, 2000).
