How can we contribute to more equitable, humanitarian and inclusive schools world wide?
How can we change schools to improve the world we live in?
The course is for individuals who are interested in the theme of inclusion valuing the uniqueness of every human being: beginners, practitioners, and/or leaders. Equity provided through inclusive schools has become one of the key values that govern policy in educational systems worldwide. However, it is still perceived as an unreachable goal in some areas.
This course will be the beginning of a worldwide network, which paves the way for us to imprint on the world together. With the inspiration of Theory U and the Waldorf holistic methods of education , we will develop our sessions by working together on the different topics across cultures.
The course is an International Digital Course developed on the elewa platform (you will find the link in the course). Our main language of communication will be English. We will provide for meetings (24th of october, 21st of november, 20th of february and 19 th of march). The session-duration is 90 minutes.The scheduled time will be CET: ??:00 PM.
We will hold 4 sessions, each on an inclusion-related topic along with exchange, interaction and discussions. If there is a need for other themes, we will determine the need for integration in due time and if there is a need for a fifth meeting we are free to do it in April.
Join us for this intercultural inclusive learning journey !
