About course

We designed the Re-boot Camp program so that participants not only learn new information and coaching techniques, but also get the opportunity to try it all out for themselves. The coaching techniques can be used to better engage students in the classroom, but can also be useful outside of the learning process. We will look at tools for mentoring other teachers so that trainees can create a culture of continuous learning and development around them. Learn the difference between teaching, mentoring, and coaching; and how to use appropriate facilitation techniques to get students more interested in learning.

Together  we will practice techniques for creating a positive learning environment built on values, creativity, patience, and empathy. We will learn to incorporate activities that require and enhance sensory perception into the teaching process. Importantly, we’ll repeatedly practice the skill of giving and receiving feedback, which is crucial for any personal growth.

We have carefully crafted the program to be “challenging” enough, but at the same time, you will go home relaxed, balanced, and with renewed inner strength. Over the course of the week you will have the opportunity to make deeper connections with other participants, explore different perspectives, and gain the courage to challenge yourself in new ways. While you are learning all kinds of new things about yourself, we of course also give you plenty of time and space for self-reflection. And all this in the beautiful and stimulating environment of the Central Slovakian countryside at the ecological center in Zaježová. Get ready for a week of vegetarian food, shared rooms and bathrooms, evenings by the fire, morning yoga, meaningful discussions, new inspirations, and lots and lots of support and empathy.
As a 2023 course participant said – “It is not only an eye opener, but also a heart opener.”
