Pre-Gala – Morning for workshops

8.30 Early Bird breakfast

9.30–10.00 "It’s going to be a hard day’s night…" Co-teaching by Businesstheatre (Merita Petäjä, Tomi Kauppinen & Elina Kähkönen)

  • More and more demands for teachers. What kind of issues create high stress?
    Could co-teaching be inspiring, enhance own learning and own wellbeing?  Is co-teaching just another laborious idea making planning even more sticky, having to spend time planning with people, whose ideas are actually not as good as mine. Let’s see a drama and see how collaboration looks like. Elina Kähkönen (experienced co-teacher) will be commenting the situation and giving hints for the actors. Come and see, if it is possible to build high-quality connections and share the load with co-teachers. This session lasts 30 minutes, and it will be inspiring the discussions in other workshops. No entry during the show. Come and see it!
