This year’s summer line-up of professional development and introductory opportunities consists of ten courses — Approaching Grades 1-8, Introduction to Waldorf Early Childhood Education, and Collaborative Leadership — each delivered in real-time, virtual classrooms. All our courses include copious resource materials and provide ample opportunities for community-building with fellow course participants to assist you in your coming school year.

Schedule
All Live From Home! courses begin promptly at 7:30 Sunday evening (with Zoom check-in starting at 7) and conclude with Friday morning’s session which ends by noon. In between (that is, from Monday-Thursday), you can expect 4.5 hours of focused, daily instructional screen time, with curriculum delivered in three separate Zoom sessions taking place between the hours of 10-4:30. IMPORTANT NOTE: All times listed are New York time.

Participants should be prepared to work on course-related assignments outside of their regularly scheduled instructional sessions, as well as be available to attend late afternoon and/or evening facilitator-led discussions on topics that may arise during the course of the week, including DEIJ conversations and faculty panels, plus “open studios” for art and music. We encourage you to keep your course week’s calendar as free as possible in order to fulfill all course obligations and to be able to take advantage of the extra informational sessions and spaces offered.
