«Celebrations of a Human-centered Pedagogy»

|   News
Impulsive presentations Rudolf Steiner's pioneering courses in education.

The Pedagogical Section and the General Anthroposophical Section are joining forces. At two events, the leaders of the respective Sections will jointly examine Rudolf Steiner's great courses in education.

These courses by Steiner, which took place during the last three years of his public work (1922-1924), were milestones and in a certain way also «celebrations of a new art of education». They were marked by the future, by light, confidence and élan.

Constanza Kaliks and Philipp Reubke, the two leaders of the Pedagogical Section, will give impulsive presentations on this topic. These will be on selected humanistic aspects of the courses (Reubke) and on some references to current challenges in pedagogy (Kaliks). Afterwards, the two will try to enter into a more in-depth dialogue with the audience. The announced contribution on Rudolf Steiner's intentions by Peter Selg, the leader of the General Anthroposophical Section, is unfortunately cancelled.
