The Art of Education in the Light of
Contemporary Scientific Evidence

 February 15-18, 2009


Keynote Speaker: Christof Wiechert


“Waldorf education is effective; the proof is in our students.” What grounds are there for
such a statement?
Can contemporary research shed light on this question? This
conference will show how modern research gives evidence to the new anthropology
founded by Rudolf Steiner in the beginning of the 20th century. Lecture topics will
include: the art of education and social needs; the art of education and cognition; the

art of education and emotional development; the art of education and will activity.

Join us as we seek to develop our understanding of these topics as well as find

renewal in invigorating and stimulating workshops by colleagues in the work.
