Becoming a teacher is more than just learning how to teach. Trainees should learn to love their students, find long-term inspiration to develop, and feel at home in their new professional community. Teacher trainers are already experts in designing learning experiences that help course participants learn teaching skills; Transformative Training takes this to the next level, designing for experiences that help participants to transform, to develop their kindness, their attentiveness, and their passion – to become teachers.
This branch of applied psychology is still in its infancy, so designing for transformation remains more an art than a science – but there are dozens of tools, strategies and techniques that can help trainers start on the journey of touching trainees' lives more deeply. The course draws on the research findings of Seligman, Csikszentmihalyi, Ryff and others, and explores their application to teacher training.
