The Human Being - Course Description

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

In this course we briefly looked at changes in the human experience comparing life in the late 1800’s to the present day. We looked at what has happened   in various aspects of human culture including religious practice and beliefs, cultural norms, family life, birth and death, work, media and communications. This set the context for looking at the birth of Waldorf education, learning about some of the basic principles and reviewing their experience of their education. This also involved spending two days in three classrooms including a whole morning in early childhood.
