Touchstones of Purposeful Education: Creating an Ermergent Vision of the Future

Een passende titel voor een bijzondere 2-daagse Masterclass met Sam Crowell voor mensen werkzaam in het onderwijs en met interesse in pedagogische tact. De masterclass vond plaats op maandag 29 en dinsdag 30 bij in Driebergen en wordt georganiEC initiative gezamenlijke blog fotoseerd door NIVOZ http://nivoz.nl/over-nivoz/missie-en-visie/ in samenwerking met Earth Charter Nederland.

Sam Crowell, hoogleraar Holistic Education en Earth Charter International Faculty uit de VS ontwikkelde het concept “emergent teaching”. Sam is een bijzonder en inspirerend mens met veel ervaring in het onderwijs, het is een voorrecht om hem te ontmoeten en met hem in de masterclass samen te werken. De masterclass verdiept, wakkert aan, frist op, en maakt nieuwe verbindingen.

 

For years NIVOZ has been advocating the needs of children (in education) and the consequences of those needs for the teachers educating them. Pedagogical Tact has been the flagship course of NIVOZ to work with thousands of teachers to improve the quality of their pedagogies. One could say this has been about the HOW of education. It is fundamental however that we can only talk about the HOW after we have a deep dialogue about the WHY of education!

Therefore, NIVOZ and Earth Charter Nederland, are more than pleased to organise masterclasses during which we will engage into a dialogue around the WHY of education based on the concept of “Emergent Teaching”. With a group of invited people we will try to reach the deeper layers, the deeper purposes of education for each of the participants.

We are excited that Sam Crowell, emeritus professor of education at the California State University and member of faculty for the Earth Charter Center on Education, has been orchestrating this masterclass. Sam Crowell is co-author of the inspiring book “Emergent Teaching”.

Content

During the two days participants engaged in content, experiences and discussions that focus on how some of the major concepts around emergent teaching lead naturally to questions of a) what students need b) the person/presence of the teacher c) what values, visions, and purposes guide where we are going d) the space of uncertainty as pedagogical text and e) how does education address the future.

Just as Pedagogical Tact has implications for the internalization of certain perspectives and perceptions that lead to new instructional skills and behaviors, the same is true for Emergent Teaching. Among these perspectives are the biology of love and “emotioning” of trust as articulated by Humberto Maturana, a new understanding of process, and non-linearity and uncertainty as new spaces for teachers to occupy and cultivate.

The social and ecological imperatives of our time, together with the Earth Charter values, integrate into these discussions, leading to curricular questions of:

a) what kind of person do I want to become?

b) what kind of world do I want to live in?
