At the upcoming Calgary Waldorf School Annual Conference, Torin Finser, PhD, faculty member in the AUNE Waldorf Teacher Education Program will speak multiple times, including an opening night keynote address, Saturday morning keynote talk, and Saturday wrap up.
Dr. Finser’s Friday night keynote is on the topic of Parents and Teachers as Role Models for Social and Ethical Interactions.
Through a living practice of relational work, we can foster social intelligence and the capacity in our children to form ethical judgements. The key is how we work together as adults. As parents and teachers, we can model forms of relationship and leadership that can release initiative and support social health in our children as they develop into ethical adults.
His Saturday morning talk will cover How We Can Help our Children Learn to Tell “Right” from “Wrong.”
As they grow from year to year, children are faced with situations that provide opportunities to learn right from wrong and how to make decisions. What are the crucial elements that support good choices? How can we help our children to make ethical choices? How does Waldorf curriculum and pedagogy provide ways for children to learn to process emotions and problem-solve? These are the key questions Torin Finser will address during this keynote presentation.
Alums, prospective students, and all friends in the area are encouraged to attend. Registration is available at the CWS conference website.
