A Satisfying School Experience: Strategies and Skills for Teachers - Florence

Rating: 5/510 users

This course has been created for teachers who want to foster a more dynamic, creative environment in the classroom to encourage and stimulate students' interest in learning.

Teachers will have the opportunity to learn 'by doing' through a range of activities and experiences aimed toward promoting higher student self-esteem, greater cohesion and involvement among teachers, students and their families, providing strategies in discouraging early school-leaving and favoring a more meaningful school experience.

Participants will explore and experiment with cooperative learning, team building, mentoring and alternative forms of expression which can be adapted to their classroom to keep their students interested, engaged and motivated. Teachers will also learn how to recognize and intervene in early signs of teacher burn-out and seek increased job satisfaction.

By the end of the course, teachers will have acquired greater knowledge about how creativity, improved communication and enhanced relational skills can be effective allies in discouraging school-leaving and dissatisfaction with the scholastic experience.

All our courses in Florence include: 2 City Guided Tours of Florence and a 1 day Tuscan Excursion to be chosen among options.

Thank you so much for the course ! Thank you to the Florence Europass team who helped me for every step for booking, accomodation... Thank you to Susan for all your advices, strategies, reflexions... I went at the beginning so exhausted... and I finished the week with energy, hope, light. I was just what I need to remember how much I love teaching and to understand how I will continue for a long time.

This course „A Satisfying School Experience: Strategies and Skills for Teachers“ was a great experience! Our trainer, Susan is a unique person who made us all feel comfortable from the first moment on. We could share problems and ideas and always felt understood. The course reveals strategies for teachers and students to feel better in the classroom, to add some extra flavor to the lessons and to be more present in the classroom and build some healthy, professional boundaries in our job as teachers. I left Florence with some tears in my eyes but fresh, relaxed and full of new ideas and motivation. Thanks again!

It was a very revealing week for me. I collaborated with Susan, a wonderful person and teacher and an excellent group of colleagues who will be a constant inspiration for my teaching from now on. I also do not want to forget our teacher of Friday Daria who showed us a lot of interesting activities. It was a very satisfying experience verifying one hundred percent the course's title.

The course was really a satisfying experience, well organized and all topics were presented. Our teacher Susan was very competent and supportive, full of knowledge and experience. It was a small group (6 people) and therefore we had enough time to share all experiences.
