Courses, Workshops & Events
Sunbridge seeks to serve and advance the Waldorf movement not only through our teacher education programs but also through courses, workshops, conferences, and other events designed to assist Waldorf teachers and pedagogical and administrative leaders in their work, as well as to introduce newcomers to Waldorf education. In addition to our June and July Summer Series, offerings are presented throughout the fall, winter, and spring.
Our annual teachers conference is an opportunity for Waldorf educators (and others) from across North America and beyond to gather and address topical issues within Waldorf education. Our Waldorf Weekend workshop allows new and prospective Waldorf community members to explore Waldorf education hands-on, while Open Days provide further opportunities to research Waldorf education and teaching. Other workshops scheduled throughout the year provide professional development opportunities for Waldorf educators and leaders working in a range of areas.
The following events are being planned for the 2022-23 academic year. More info, and registration details, will follow, so keep checking this page.
