USC Masterclasses in Steiner Education

Steiner Education Masterclasses – University of the Sunshine Coast

We welcome Steiner teachers across Australia to our intense, truncated 1 and 2 day versions of the Steiner Masterclasses for challenging times, designed to inspire, refresh and renew Steiner teachers for the new year. Our Introduction to Steiner Education is for those new to Steiner or who would like more information. Join us via Zoom or live, face-to-face in Queensland at the University of the Sunshine Coast. Our focus is on Imaginative creative teaching during the pandemic, as well as First Nations Ways of Being and Knowing. Our process-oriented experiences are designed with busy teachers in mind.

Introduction to Steiner Education – Wednesday 13 January, 2021 9am – 4pm

Early Childhood Thursday 14 and Friday 15 January, 2021 9am – 4pm

Primary Thursday 14 January, 2021 9am – 4pm

High School Friday 15 January, 2021 9am – 4pm.

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

Masterclasses are offered in dual mode for everyone to be together – come and immerse yourself for a full day either on site at USC Sunshine Coast (located at Sippy Downs, QLD) or via Zoom.

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. The 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. Depending on your Steiner experience, participants will receive a USC certificate of participation equivalent to their attendance hours of professional development.

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 introduces Steiner’s approaches and pedagogy in a hands-on and experiential way, and includes a lecture, workshops, discussions and creative activities. This is a prerequisite for anyone wanting to complete a Masterclass who does not have experience in Steiner Education.

Course facilitators are Dr Shelley Davidow, USC’s School of Education and Early Childhood educator Carol Liknaitzky plus First Nations artists and educators to be announced soon.
