28th Annual Conference of the International Training Circle
April 30 - May 4
Inclusive Social Development in Professional Education for Educators, Therapists and Social Professions
April 30 – May 4, 2024, at La Reserva Naturaleza + Arte in Capilla del Señor, Buenos Aires Province, Argentina
This year’s annual conference of the International Training Circle will take place at a beautiful retreat center, just North of Buenos Aires, Argentina. This is an exciting new step, arising from our work over the last three years. Going forward, we will be alternating between meetings in Europe and in other regions of our movement. This will allow us to get to know each other’s work and contexts more deeply, and to strengthen regional networks by including more colleagues from host regions in an international network experience than we have so far been able to do.
While the program of our conference is still in the works and will be shared in more detail in February, the next steps for the development of our network are clear. They emerge from our work under the umbrella of the ERASMUS+ Project Peer2Peer-CET, which has been our focus from 2021 to 2023:
- Building a network platform for sharing competences and resources
- Developing a shared reference framework for professional education in our field
- Developing continuing education courses and micro-credentials that can be offered internationally
- Developing new partnership formats
Thematically, we are proposing to do all this while exploring together what “Inclusive Social Development” may mean in the context of professional education and training. While meeting at Sekem in Egypt in October, the Training Council members began to unpack a vision of inclusive practices in education and training that we want to work on further together in April, with input from colleagues in Argentina, Latin America and around the world.
Everyone who is active as a mentor, lecturer or instructor in professional education and training contexts in anthroposophic curative education, social therapy and related fields is warmly invited!
