Description:

Competency Area: Educational & Social Policy
Restricted to M.Ed. Summer Sequence Regular Waldorf students who began in Summer 2011. Online course.

This online course is an opportunity for students to work deeply with a subject area of their choice. This study allows for both independent research and for the collaborative experience of journaling with a partner. This intensive work over three months will help students develop their relationship to anthroposophy and to Waldorf education. In the second summer, students are required to share their research with a large group of teacher trainees. This action-research approach promotes their taking an active role in learning and strengthening and vitalizing a larger community. All work will need to be completed by May 1.
