International Teacher Exchange
As part of the Waldorf 100 Centenary year we at the Rudolf-Steiner-School in Berlin are organising an international and multi-cultural teacher and co-worker exchange.
How is the Waldorf curriculum and pedagogical approach applied in other cultures? How do teachers and educators in countries with predominantly different religions deal with the religious character of Waldorf education? What new ideas can refresh and inspire our everyday school life?
On the occasion of the anniversary year such an exchange of valuable experience can come about through numerous personal contacts giving each participant unique insight into other "Waldorf cultures". We are also convinced that the exchange will contribute to growing understanding and tolerance, strengthen the Waldorf vision while offering a chance to maintain a modern and vital characteristic in our educational efforts.
Just imagine the possibilities: Mrs X from Sekem recites verses from the Koran with a 10th class of the Dahlem School, while Mr Y from Berlin forges glowing iron with a class in Nairobi, or Mr Z from Honolulu rehearses hula dances with an 8th class, while Mrs Q from Berlin discusses aspects of nutritional science with students in São Paulo ... There is no limit to the possibilities and adventures on offer!
Through personal contacts and the experience of everyday life in schools around the world, new ideas can emerge and we may get inspiration for how diversely Waldorf education could develop in the course of the next 100 years!
An exchange is possible for numerous teachers and the exact timing will be organized to fit each individual case. The project is planned to run from 2019 to around 2022 with each exchange running for three to four weeks. Flight and accommodation can be financed by our school.
Interested colleagues are asked to send a written application to our school. An exchange school can also be proposed. All colleagues in the team are asked to support the organisation of necessary substitutions; possible substitution solutions are to be attached to the application.
All colleagues participating in the exchange are jointly responsible for the introduction and support of the arriving colleagues who ideally will have the possibility of private accommodation within the school community.
Colleagues from other schools and other countries can also apply, we will then bring exchange partners together.
With the warmest regards

For the college of teachers: Juliane Koberg-Wagner, Ingrid Eisenberger and Jeremy Deacon
