Waldorf Weekend: Foundations and Fundamentals of Waldorf Education from Early Childhood through High School

Friday, January 24, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - Saturday, January 25, 2020 @ 5:30 pm

Open to all lovers of education and especially relevant for new and prospective Waldorf community members (teachers, parents, grandparents, staff, and board members) 

Our popular Waldorf Weekend workshop is designed to provide an in-depth and experiential survey of the basis and the basics of Waldorf Education. In addition to exploring the Waldorf curriculum, your workshop will include a discussion of Rudolf Steiner’s insights in human development and a look into the anthroposophical underpinnings of the Waldorf impulse. You’ll enjoy hands-on artistic activities such as music, movement, and drawing, and there’ll be plenty of time for questions and answers. Our Waldorf Weekends are a most memorable—and fun!—learning experience.

 

Instructors

Linda Ogden-Wolgemuth, PhD, (Lead; Anthroposophy and Elementary Curriculum) is Sunbridge Institute’s director of education and advancement. She joined the Sunbridge administration in 2018, after previously serving as a trustee on the Sunbridge Board. From 2006-2018 Linda was a class teacher at Manhattan’s Rudolf Steiner School, where she also sat on the Board of Trustees and College of Teachers and chaired the Community Education Committee; her background in education also includes teaching at the university level. A longtime student of anthroposophy, Linda earned her bachelor’s degree with honors in the field of German area studies from The Johns Hopkins University, her master’s and doctoral degrees in German languages and literatures from the University of Pennsylvania, and her certificate in elementary education from Sunbridge College.

Early childhood, high school, and artistic specialists to be announced.
