Pedagogical integrity: Our facilitators walk their talk. They will put the theory we are teaching into practice so that you can learn both through your experience as well as through reading, videos, conversations and reflection. We encourage participants to teach active, learner-centered, skill-based classes—and that´s the way we design and teach our classes as well. Our facilitators are also constantly learning and evolving as well and they bring their own individual learning to our group context.
Lifelong learning: Our course is designed to not only give you practical tools for immediate use in the classroom but also to plant seeds in both the frameworks and the philosophies that we are teaching and the reflective practice that we are using. Teaching is a demanding, constantly changing profession, and the SIT focus on experiential learning and reflective practice prepares you to adapt and experiment, wherever your professional journey takes you.
