Workshop 3 of a 6-week online course with Sydney Rudolf Steiner College


painting of a man standing on a rock, looking into the fogJoin our Steiner Education students as they ponder and debate five big questions about the tricky nature of human consciousness and its effect on the way we understand history, past, present and future.

In the 1st session we unpacked the concept of ‘consciousness’; in session 2, we further explore what is meant by ‘evolving consciousness, and why this concept is central to Steiner philosophy.

Now, in session3, we will follow up this discussion by asking:

Do I really need to understand Steiner’s philosophy to teach in a Steiner School? 

We will examine some core principles of Waldorf pedagogy in the context of consciousness and culture. It introduces Steiner’s cultural epochs and outlines their relationship to human development and the Steiner school curriculum. Some core assumptions of the Waldorf curriculum are examined in light of current pedagogical research.

So, if you have ever wondered about ‘evolving consciousness’ in Steiner works, or are involved in a Steiner school, or even just intrigued,  join us for our online workshops where we unpack some of the big questions about our past and how they shape the possibilities of our future development. Whether your interest is Steiner Education or Steiner philosophy, come and join in to the conversation.

This online course is led by Dr Fiona Campbell who has researched this topic for 25 years. Fiona has been a lecturer at Sydney Rudolf Steiner College since 1994 and combines her wealth of knowledge and experience in Anthroposophy and visual arts training with her studies about human consciousness and phenomenology.
