An incredibly relevant, valuable and essential seminar for educators in our Age.
Delivered online over two sessions (180 minutes) for Steiner/Waldorf professionals and aspiring teachers.
Participants will explore their own system of habits, assumptions and beliefs, examining notions of inherited and unconscious bias in a series of interactive exercises, considering the implications for the Steiner/Waldorf curriculum in terms of lesson content and the approach as a whole.
The Seminar will look at ways of approaching areas of concern in a positive way, and explore what educators can bring to complete the experience they are offering students.
Topics will include issues of race, male privilege, gender identity, sexual orientation and modern family structures, looking at examples of good practice and considering what practices should maybe be discontinued. It will also look as possible instances of racism in Rudolf Steiner’s work and offer ways of approaching these in our own minds and in conversation with the school community.
