RCD in Virtual and Hybrid Settings


Many educators are asking how they can use the principles of Responsibility-Centered Discipline to maintain a productive and engaging classroom in a virtual setting.

In this program, RCD Creator Larry Thompson, M.Ed. and RCD Master Trainer and former District Technology Specialist Eric Clark, M.Ed. share specific strategies on how educators can maintain discipline in virtual and hybrid settings, as well as how to conduct Give ’em Five Conversations on various platforms (Zoom, Google Classrooms, etc.) How do you address open defiance and/or disrespect in a Google Meet? How do you engage disinterested students? How can you get those who are not attending to join your online classes? How do you respond to conflicts between classmates in a Zoom setting? How do you address online relational aggression and “gags” within the classroom?

Designed for educators who are implementing RCD in their classrooms, or who have attended an RCD or Defiant Students training session, this 2-hour Virtual RCD Leadership Institute features a one-hour session on Using RCD in Virtual & Hybrid Classrooms. It also provides attendees with a refresher of core RCD concepts, updates on new RCD online training materials, and a Q&A session addressing struggles with student discipline and virtual classroom management.

  • Handling discipline problems in the digital classroom using RCD principles
  • Using non-punitive measures to address defiance and disinterest in a virtual setting
  • Responding to online conflicts and relational aggression
