Participate in our DNS pedagogy crash course!
8 – 14 July 2019
Why a “boot camp”?
Being a teacher is one of the greatest responsibilities that one can have in society.
Teachers teach doctors.
Teachers teach firefighters.
Teachers teach teachers.
Teachers touch lives and stay in our memories for a long time.
To be a teacher is much more than to show up in a classroom, and to give grades after the exams. To be a teacher is to love knowledge and to love sharing it.
Unfortunately, not everyone has four years to experience our ways of learning at DNS · The Necessary Teacher Training College. Sometimes people ask us if it is possible to attend some shorter courses – just to get a taste of what DNS is. Therefore, the idea to make a DNS “crash course” in ONE week was born.
The DNS Boot Camp serves the purpose to create a learning space where DNS’ values, pedagogy and the idea of the 21st century teacher could be explored.
What is it?
The DNS Boot Camp is a camp that aims to discover and re-discover the principles of what makes DNS unique.
What can you expect?
To discuss topics such as pedagogy, education, learning processes, self-development, learn what is happening in the world at large and etc. The schedule will be constructed so we have time for discussions, presentations, workshops and a time to practice DNS pedagogy, like doing field investigations, working in groups, using the language of arts and music – and who knows, maybe a bus trip as well?
How will it happen?
The event will take place in Tvind international School Centre (Skorkaervej 8, Ulfborg 6990, Denmark) and will count with the participation of DNS students, and all of those who are interested in being part of it.
The event will have the duration of seven days, and you can contact us for more details (such as the full programme and price).
The students and teachers run our school together, therefore this camp will depend on your contribution as well! The participants are invited to be part of creating the programme, therefore if you have a wish to join and have some knowledge or skill to bring give us a message.
Who can join?
During five days friends of DNS, our alumni, the hitchhikers, and all those interested, can use this conference to express their valuable opinions and experiences about something so close and special to all of us: Another Kind of Education.
The world needs teachers, therefore DNS invites you to Join DNS BOOT CAMP and explore with us the beautiful path of improving education.
How much will it cost?
The approximate cost is €100 (food and accommodation included). The exact price will be announced later.
How do you register?
