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.

First Teacher Education Course 1919 in 2019


Centenary conference July 6-14, 2019 at the Goetheanum, Dornach/ Schwitzerland


In English/ German


The Pedagogical Section is reviving the 'First Teacher Education Course' of the first Waldorf school which took place in 1919. 9 days at the Goetheanum during the Centenary “Waldorf 100”


We warmly welcome you all to experience the complete 1919 course for this unique anniversary!


In the first teacher education course Rudolf Steiner laid the foundations for the Waldorf/Steiner schools.


And what a strong foundation this is!


In lectures, discussion groups and artistic workshops we will work with the notes taken by the participants in 1919 which led to the publications of „The Foundations of Human Experience“, „Practical Advice to Teachers“ and „Discussions with Teachers“. 


In this way we will find new approaches to the foundations of the Waldorf/Steiner schools and revitalize them.


We hope that this special 2019 conference will serve as a strong impulse for the future.


The conference will be based on a special edition of the 'First Teacher Education Course'.


The three parts of the course have been newly edited and chronologically arranged and will be published to coincide with the Waldorf Centenary. 


We are looking forward to celebrate this special publication with you.
