Teaching Inspiration attracts 500 teachers to Prague from all over the country

9. November 2015 The Kunratice Elementary School in Prague bustled with the second annual Festival of Teaching Inspiration on November 6 and 7, 2015. Instead of students, the teachers sat at the classroom desks; they had gathered there to absorb new ideas and practical tips for teaching.

This year, the review of inspirational examples of good teaching practice, based on the ‘teachers for teachers’ policy, attracted two times more visitors than last year. During the two Festival days, 494 participants from more than 60 schools all over the Czech Republic were accredited for the event. Among the Festival guests we also welcomed Mr. Jaroslav Fidrmuc, Deputy Minister in charge of the General, Vocational and Further Education Section of the Ministry of Education, delegates from the municipalities responsible for our project schools, representatives of the country’s Regions, and many others.

More than 90 hands-on workshops conducted by project school teachers and other top notch instructors were prepared for the teachers. The participants found workshops on the development of reading skills, inquiry-based teaching, and peer support amongst teachers, and also those on personality and social education of children, in the broad-ranging program. Other workshops focused on senior-level teachers, language teachers, and on those interested in teaching math using Professor Hejný’s method. Video workshops with examples of the Teaching Inspiration Video Textbooks met with a great response.

If you want to get the feel of the Festival of Teaching Inspiration you can watch the brief stories broadcast by Czech Television and TV Barrandov from the event.
We are preparing additional outputs from the Festival of Teaching Inspiration and will post information about them on our website and in the project newsletter.
