At Relational Education, our events tend to focus on creating opportunities and facilitating spaces for dialogue about educational transformation. We believe that such interactions can enable us to attend to multiple perspectives and diverse practices of integrating the relational dimension at the core of teaching and learning.
Educational Evaluation for Well-Being: Personal, Relational and Global – An Int’l Webinar on 22 Oct 2022
On 13th October 2022, Learning for Well-Being Foundation, Lifelong Learning Platform, Taos Institute, and Global Humanity for Peace Institute at the University of Wales TSD co-hosted an international Webinar entitled: “Educational Evaluation for Well-Being: Personal, Relational and Global”.
Global educational thinkers, practitioners and policymakers discussed the challenges of the current educational assessment paradigm, and explored the potentials of an innovative orientation to education, one that places the process of relating at the centre of learning and well-being. As the panellists proposed, if we can make this paradigm shift, the door opens to truly innovative practices, such as collaborative pedagogies, co-creative curricula, and a loving, caring and well-being sensitive educational environment.
