Learning crucial teaching skillsFor the past 10 months of Teaching Practice as a part of my education at DNS Tvind, I have had the pleasure of working as a teacher-assistant with learning-apprehensive students at Friskolen Helios. The time spend at the school will...
Dear everyone, This year turned out completely different than we had imagined. At the same time, so many things happened, just as we planned for. It has been a very productive and eventful year. Here are some of the things we have achieved together in 2020....
Humana People to People remains committed to shouldering the task of training teachers of another kind who are ready to teach, inspire and lead the new generations for many years to come.
Integration is an important aspect, or rather one of the goals, of the “Tvind Pedagogy”. In Tvind, deliberate effort is regularly put into reflecting about how to make it better, into adjusting our knowledge of it to each student and into constantly finding out new ways to make them feel like they belong. These concepts and reflections later materialise in the many ways in which we actually exercise integration.
DNS 2017, the senior team, is now finalising one of the last periods of DNS programme: Teaching Practice. Teaching Practice lets us experiment in the reality of the classroom, apply teaching methodologies and most importantly, make mistakes and learn from them. However, teaching practice doesn’t end after the lessons. We also contribute to the teaching practice place by being in charge of the programme in the school and initiating a chosen project, our “Footprint”.
European Reality is a 6-months period, part of the second year of the DNS programme, during which the team moves to a bigger European City with the goal to find jobs, a House, learn about the European working class’ way of living, and get involved in the city’s cultural life. In this article, you can hear Laura from DNS17 expressing her view on the educational value of experiencing such a period!
There are too many things I want to learn and share: being a teacher combines both – Svetlana, alumni and DNS Teacher
To choose the path of teaching took me some time, I must say. It started on my very first 1st of September, this is the day when the school year starts in Lithuania. I simply loved it. And I am not talking about the lessons and tests, but about all the kinds of people I got to interact with and about the learning process that was happening there, somehow in between lessons most of the time. Though I was in love with the school and Summer holidays always seemed too long of a break, I never thought I will become a teacher. It is now, when I reflect, I see lots of sense in my actions and choices that led me to choose this profession.
Imagine you had to make a list, a catalogue, of all that exists. Where would you start?
You would probably look around, and start to name or to write down everything that you see or that comes to your mind. Soon, you would come across some dilemmas, and start to notice that it is not always so easy to establish what exists and what doesn’t.
The Invisible WallsThere is such a huge contrast in going through different countries on land. Not by flying and suddenly arriving to a place, but gradually traveling through landscapes. The scenery changes slowly, our eyes adapt to the shift in various forms,...
6 ways to keep learning during a lockdown The COVID-19 outbreak forced many of us into quarantine — as we know, lockdowns are a good strategy to slow down the spread of the virus. But having to practice social distancing doesn’t mean that our lives are just paused:...
We can learn from everyone and anyone.
There is so much learning that can be done around us all the time if we just open our eyes to the opportunities and open our minds to the possibilities.
These things have touched my heart rather than my head, I was incredibly humbled by the humanity I encountered.
Voices of EmpowermentIs there such a thing as “West African Culture”? To begin with, from my experience and understanding, culture is a mixture of various elements like language, traditions, beliefs, mentality - all within a specific social group. Let it be a nation,...
