We have exciting news! The Neufeld Institute has created a website to support educators! Check out the message below from the IDEA Centre Team.
Hello! We are excited to welcome you to our new educators hub!
Educators everywhere have been asking for support. Many are wanting to bring the developmental paradigm to their learning communities, but are not sure where to find resources. And there's nothing like having a village to learn and grow with. We heard this, felt this and came together to create this! Thus, the IDEA Centre.
Together we are sharing resources, opportunities and ideas for putting insight and inspiration into practice. We want to support educators to move from "aha!" to "I can do this!"
Every month we will be featuring different books, articles, stories, recordings, classes, courses and professional development opportunities, so check back often to see what is new.
This month, we are offering a free webinar (together as a team) on September 24th on Emotional Health and School as a way to kick things off and support parents and educators in this challenging time we find ourselves in. Our focus will be on what we might expect to see in children and youth, emotionally speaking, and how we might create the kind of conditions that will nurture emotional health in our students. We'd love you to join us! See below for more information and registration.
Also this month, Hannah Beach and Tamara Strijack are launching a professional development series based on their newly released book, Reclaiming our Students. This weekly series will provide insights and relationship-based strategies for how we can support students. We will explore the vital role of emotional safety, shed light on what is behind some of the challenging behaviours we see and look to practices that can help us restore and awaken caring feelings in our students. Whether you simply wish to understand more about one topic, explore a broader theme or dive in for the whole discovery journey, you are welcome! And if the scheduled time doesn’t work for you, the recordings will be available to you for a week following the live class. See below for more information and registration.
This Centre is for you, in whatever way you are supporting children to learn and grow. We look forward to meeting you and having you as part of our village!
