Description

The course is designed to offer an incomparable occasion to reflect about yourself as a Teacher. It addresses both to young teachers wanting to build a long and satisfied career and to experienced teachers willing to refresh their approach to teaching.

Teaching is somehow a mission, and being a teacher is a wonderful job that doesn’t often finish when you leave the school building every day, so it can be difficult to disconnect. Teachers involved in the program will acquire a certain level of self-awareness about their role, their approach to teaching and their being part of a bigger team, in order to prevent stress and promote a healthy work-life balance, satisfaction and effectiveness.

By the end of the course, teachers will learn how to set healthy boundaries to cope with overworking, how to regulate emotions, how to use assertiveness to respond properly to colleagues, students and families’ demands, and how to maximize their strengths in order to minimize hurriedness and time wasting. They will participate in group dynamic exercises and share their experiences in an international environment, experiencing effective communication techniques, mindfulness and creative management tools.

The program of the course will follow a general structure but will actually be influenced by the topics, needs and situations that will emerge in the group, that may be different throughout different course editions.

Concept by: Marta Mandolini

Reviews about this course

It was a very interesting and relaxing course. Davide is an excellent psychologist and trainer, I learned a lot about me as a teacher and as a person, I learned about emotions, about solving problems at work and reducing the stress, the activities were very creative and relaxing. Before the course, I had only read about mindfulness, but now I know that it is a simple and effective way to improuve your life and, more importantly, I know how to do it. The atmosphere was nice and calm, I enjoyed the experience and I strongly recommend this course

Alina Mustateanu

Gostei todas as atividades realizadas, a forma como foram apresentadas e a cooperação durante o curso. Conhecer aspectos da realidade quotidiana e escolar de outros países, compartilhar práticas, aplicar os idiomas inglês e italiano. Realizar reflexão e relaxamento individual. A organização sequencial e temporal das sessões estava muito bem estruturada, assim como os conteúdos e atividades que podem ser aplicadas na escola com professores e / ou alunos.

Teresa Soares

The course was quite inspiring and practical. In every day there were countless activities that allowed an interaction among all and that became a clear added value for my day to day as a teacher. Davide has created a very pleasant atmosphere among all, always available and with know-how on all subjects. I really enjoyed having this opportunity.
