About this Event

Who is this course for?

Note: All masterclasses are offered in dual mode ie face-to-face or via Zoom.

Based on successful feedback from the past two years, we are once again offering Steiner Education Masterclasses in a unique and truncated format, designed for 'Soul Economy' during challenging times.

Immerse yourself for a full day either on site at USC Sunshine Coast in Sippy Downs, QLD or via Zoom for an Introduction to Steiner Education (7 hours), and Masterclasses in Steiner Early Childhood Education (14 hours), Steiner Primary School Education (7 hours) and Steiner High School Education (7 hours). Masterclasses will be offered in dual mode so everyone is together. Depending on your Steiner experience, participants will receive a USC certificate of participation equivalent to their attendance hours of professional development.

With a focus on an authentic Education of Place, and First Nations Ways of Being and Knowing, our 2021 Steiner Education Masterclasses offer participants a dynamic, cross-curricular process-based experience for early childhood, primary or high school Steiner educators. Masterclasses are aimed at educators in Steiner schools who would like to deepen and expand their practice and pedagogy and create rich, relevant approaches, content and progressions for the year ahead.

For those new to Steiner Education, we welcome you to enrol in our one-day Introduction to Steiner Education - (almost) everything you ever wanted to know about Steiner Education. The day aims to provide mainstream teachers, interested community members and university students a concentrated overview of the main elements of Steiner Education. It will introduce Steiner’s approaches and pedagogy in a hands-on and experiential way, and includes a lecture, workshops, discussions and creative activities.
