Workshops on how to encourage class participation are a staple of teaching and learning centres across the country. However, little of that advice is geared to the needs on an oft-neglected subset of introverted university students: the ones who arent shy.
If we want to encourage all of our students to participate in class, we have to accept that shy students are not necessarily introverted. And introverts are not necessarily shy.
Shyness is a form of social anxiety. Bringing these students out of their shells typically requires empathy, trust-building, and most importantly a focus on self-efficacy.
Our
Application: I read everything I could find about shyness. focus on something
other than himself or herself (Alden & Cappe, 1986). I also have taken the
suggestion of experts on childhood fears e. , Sarafino, 1986, p. 193) and
started teaching Elizabeth to calm herself through deep breathing and
distraction. So far this calming strategy has proven most valuable in dealing
with pain.
If you
find it difficult to apply the methods contained in this set of
recommendations, or if the methods don’t work for your child, contact a guidance
counsellor at your child’s school or consult a psychologist who provides counselling
to children and families.

Confidence is something had by few and desired by all. If you’re someone who suffers from social anxiety, self-esteem issues, shyness, or anything similar, know that you’re not alone. I’ve felt that way, too.
It’s easy to feel a lack of confidence in college, where you’re expected to be meeting all these new people and trying new things. For some of us, that’s wildly intimidating. With that said, college is also the perfect place to grow your self-confidence. After all, confidence is not some unique trait had only by the lucky few who were born with it.
Give shy children plenty of time to respond to questions or to speak to
the class. Don’t rush to speak for them, for instance, during
show-and-tell. If the child doesn’t answer after a period of
several seconds, go on pleasantly to the next child or activity.
Show empathy and understanding. By talking about
similar emotions you experienced either recently or when you were a
child, you can show the child that the emotions are OK and that it is
all right to talk about them.
Reward outgoing behavior. Praise children when they interact in a
positive way with another person.
Our Student Focus series profiles the fascinating and varied activities of Oxford students. Miranda Reilly, an undergraduate studying English Literature, writes about balancing her studies with setting up a society for students with social anxiety, shyness and introversion.
‘Starting my undergraduate English Language and Literature degree last academic year with undiagnosed social anxiety, an extreme shyness which Id had since starting secondary school, I spent a lot of my first term feeling trapped in my room and isolated. I didnt have much of a sense of purpose.
Its tough fitting in at uni if youre naturally introverted like me but an active social life is still possible.

Are you a shy student at university? Dont worry there are many of us aboard that ship. Its a tough place to be.
When I started university last year, I found it difficult to make friends I tended to grab the first person I met to ensure I wasnt left behind when the rest of my course began to form cliques.
Shy people tend to be overly self-critical of their performance in social situations. In their view, they are never outgoing enough or witty enough to be satisfied with themselves. To help overcome their shyness, shy people can begin to minimize the anxiety such expectations create by focusing on their strengths, and not only on what they perceive as their weaknesses. Thus, focusing on the reactions of others to what she did or said, rather than on the negative statements about herself, will shift her focus of attention to others and make her feel less self-conscious.
