Permaculture Teachers Course
the New School Permaculture Team
Next course will be in October in the island of S,Miguel - Portugal
The PTC its a course designed for people that want to learn how to share information in a clear and supportive way.
We spend our time sharing about educational tools that can be used to present information in a way that there is little difference between student and teacher.
There is a deep focus on the practice of learner based education and discussion about the results.
On this course we also learn about how to teach the PDC and other courses, how to develop curriculums and content and how to design classes of any topic.
This course has also the purpose of empowering people that want to become a permaculture teacher.
Our main goal is to create a safe environment for people to open and experiment with our tricks under our supervision and support.
After teaching on more than 30 Permaculture Design Course (PDC) and 30 other diverse courses like Permaculture Social courses (PSC), Permaculture Forest Courses (PFC), Permaculture Water Course (PWC), Helder have been developing very simple tools to create a good learner, after all to be a good teacher its very usefull to be a better learner.
On that process Helder been focusing most of his energy on learning from poor people in every country he visits and try to understand that openness.
While traveling more than 30 countries and working with people in the deep amazon were rivers have deep oil polution or with quechua people in the Andes and having to face air polution due to mine extractions, there came a powerfull moment of transition.
This transition is the vision of the New School Permaculture and its to provide alternative creative educational thinking and practice by supporting people on having a different perspective on ecosocial design.
To do that we focus on what is essential and fundamental.
On this course you will learn about what are the main patterns in education and how to manage them in a way that the students get empowered.
How to design a lesson and a classroom, how to develop a course, promotion and preparations, hosting and celebration.
How to teach a PDC or any other course of any kind and how to make a living out of it, supporting the needs of nature and of people.
The time has arrived for people to have availabke and experiment with New School Permaculture educational ToolBox.
The course is presented by creative non formal education methods, that are based on creating a bridge between the right and left side of the brain, so that the analytical and creative abilities of the students get fully stimulated and get the most out of the experience...for many people is the most empowering and inspiring transformative process of their lives...and they carry this with them every were they go....and thats our goal.
