Several of the books written by Torin Finser, chair of the AUNE Department of Education and a speaker and author well-known throughout the Waldorf community, are being translated into other languages.
School RenewalÂ will soon come out in Spanish and Portuguese;Â two chapters of Organizational IntegrityÂ will also be available in Spanish for a January workshop Torin will give in Mexico. School as a Journey will also be published in Portuguese in time for Torinâ€™s speaking engagement in Sao Paulo, Brazil, next July.Â Chinese translations of Organizational Integrity and School as a Journey are in the works, along with a translation of School as a Journey into Farsi by an AUNE Waldorf student, Leila Alemi.
â€œWith globalization and the general interconnectedness of the world, Waldorf is becoming highly international, with schools in more than 100 countries,â€ said Torin, also a founding member of the Center for Anthroposophy. â€œThereâ€™s also a deep thirst for alternative education.â€
As Torinâ€™s 22-year career as a teacher and a writer has flowered, so has AUNEâ€™s Waldorf program. â€œAUNE is one of the most recognized places for Waldorf teacher education in the English speaking world,â€ he says.
Torinâ€™s eighth book, A Second Classroom? Parent-Teacher Relationship in the Waldorf School, will be published next spring.
