If you want to educate others, you yourself need to be educated. If you want to have any kind of influence on young people, you yourself need to stay young and continuously work on yourself.

 

Simon Gfeller, Swiss teacher and author (1868 - 1943)

Overcoming Resistance


In the new Midsummer Journal of the Pedagogical Section you'll find summaries of the lectures given at the World Teachers' Conference 2016 on the topic of "Overcoming Resistance" by Claus-Peter Röh, Stefan Sigler, Constanza Kaliks, Christof Wiechert, Michal BenShalom and Florian Osswald.

Over 800 colleagues from 46 different countries spanning all the continents came to Dornach either to contribute or participate. It was a week of encountering one another, of exchange, of learning, of looking towards the future, of facing up together to the realities of our time, and of art.

 

This edition of the journal focuses on the lectures given at the recent conference. All the morning speakers have now edited their contributions. They are published in English and in German on the webpage of the Pedagogical Section.
