Hello everyone,

We'd like to invite you to our second annual Art of Hosting in Education event, happening in Lithuania, February 17-21 2015.

Art of Hosting in Education is an international 5 day training program for all education stakeholders who are passionate about the future of education and who want to together explore how to create a better learning and collaboration culture in our schools, communities and organizations.
The purpose of this event is to build and strengthen relationships between all education stakeholders (school leaders and teachers, representatives of government agencies, university leaders and staff, students, educational consultants, non-governmental organizations, business representatives and politicians) and empower their network to act together using participatory practices.

Hello Stefan,

I somehow missed your message here from in July! Sorry. Are you still thinking of bringing AoH to Tirol? You know about the trainings that happened in Bregenz and Allgau, right? I guess both Ursula and Gabriele are the ones that could help you further! - and of course Silvia too!

With love,

Hi Stefan,

wir hören uns sowieso bald, wegen der AoH Trainingsidee in München. Aber falls du einen "ally" für andere Veranstaltungen an deiner Uni brauchst, können wir gerne mal reden, vielleicht lohnt es sich ja, dass ich mal von München nach Tirol komme?

Liebe Grüße,

Hello dear Ria!

I haven't been on this page for a long time but now I feel the time is right to connect back to what is important right now.

I'm studying Elementary School Teacher at the PH Tirol in Austria. I joined the student's represantatives board and I long to be the head of it this year. I'm very fond of the AoH techniques and I'm going to use it for my "TutorInnen-Projekt" in autumn. I want to introduce it into the school system here but what I need are allies for that change.
I hoped to get any knowledge from you or motivation or some sort of help to bring AoH to Tirol - for students and pupils.

In thoughts,

Thanks, Ria.  Nice contrasting with a favorite protocol, ORID, and to see how AOH is influencing how teachers engage with students and each other.

Great blogpost about Art of Hosting meets Art of Teaching! Greatly inspiring I guess for the people here in this group.

A lovely little video about Kufunda and the youth program - using Circle Practice as one of the AoH practices for youth leadership development:
