Abstract: Classroom management is complex, and different elements of it need to be thought when making decisions about certain circumstances. As instructors, we have several questions in our mind about effective management and control. How is order established and maintained? How to behave in what type of misbehavior? What type of classroom management model is affective in which classroom? What are some of my personal and professional characteristics that might affect the decisions about classroom management? In this workshop, we will explore the definition of classroom management in 21st century in higher education. Afterwards, with an inventory we will find out our beliefs on discipline. Lastly, we will discuss the common classroom management problems in our classrooms, and possible solutions to them which may lead us to another gathering about online classroom management.
