Course Description

Just because of unreflected habitude, many schools are often managed with a hierarchically “top-down” approach. Most academic decisions are made by a small number of top-level staff members while teachers are encouraged to follow the curriculum and teach by the coursebook.

Over time, this can result in teachers feeling like being isolated, unrecognized, and trapped in an environment unconducive to change and development—eventually leading to burnout. Instead, they are weakly encouraged to build on their own creativity and develop novel strategies to innovate their daily activities.

This course challenges such a hierarchical top-down approach on the ground that schools and organizations work better when teachers and workers are given more autonomy. Accordingly, the course will explore key themes to help participants promote a more collegial (“bottom-up”) approach to decision-making within their school or organization.

With a practical approach, course participants will discuss collegiality in the workplace and learn about practical ways to implement democratic modes of collective decision-making and resilience within the organization. The course will also focus on educating the young generations on democracy and introducing collegiality in classroom activities.

The course will also try to demonstrate that the more democratized an organization is, the more sustainable it will be. Traditional models of administration make it harder for organizations to change, and for workers to promote sustainability as a topic. Instead, the course will show how a more democratic organizational structure can provide an eco-friendly school environment. By the end of the course, participants will have acquired the capacity to build a work environment based around reflection and collegiality to support change and sustainability in their school or organization.
