The Art of Teaching Conference
Do you wonder how to stay relevant in this fast-changing world? Do you have students struggling with self-sabotage? Have you ever felt more like a therapist than a teacher? Most of us would say yes, and that is why this year’s conference is bringing EDUA Group teachers together to dive into these mind-related topics. Expand beyond the ordinary, widen your perspective, and come meet and mingle with your colleagues while taking part in exciting talks and workshops about the human mind.
KEYNOTE: GET OVER YOURSELF
Přednášejicí: T. Kuzníková a A. Skarżyńska, JCL Poland
We teachers tend to look at teaching in quite a self-centered way. We tend to overthink everything we do and become anxious about future hypothetical moments of not knowing the correct answer on the spot, thus sinking into a never-ending thinking process. Or we do the exact opposite, as we think we have it all. There is no room for improvement. Every single student is the same; we have seen and taught everything. However, have you ever considered that making a mistake and getting feedback from others can bring a new burst of energy? Have you ever heard about Frank Farrelly’s provocative approach? If you haven’t, prepare to get over yourself and jolt your current mindset.
Positive words. Positive actions.
