Happy Places to Teach - Would learning change if educational institutions were the best employers in the world?

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The session will ask some questions and try to sketch school from one point of view:
What if schools could offer working conditions for all those who are enthusiastic and motivated to accompany children and young people (and all others) to get the best out of themselves and to learn how to lead a self-effective and self-determined life in a changing society and digitalising world.
How do educational institutions change if we first look at them from the perspective of the workplace and working conditions and then, in a second step, bring them together with the many concepts that promote learning and a great deal of enthusiasm for individualised learning and collective action?
What can school administrations and teacher leaders do to establish an appreciative and effective work culture in which all teachers and school staff feel comfortable and together create a great place to learn and live for and with their students?
Who should be an employer (the state? the school management? a management?) and what does it take to make this possible and good?
The aim of this session is to discuss successful examples of appreciative work culture, effective leadership and, above all, the incredible number of opportunities for transformation if schools were the best employers. I look forward to discussing this with you.
