About the course

This course is designed for educators who have previously participated in a one-day workshop with Wilson McCaskill.

The ultimate objective of the Play Is The Way® methodology is independent, self-managing, self-motivated, empathetic children of good character.

Understanding that empathy is the foundation of humanity, Workshop Two  builds on Workshop One. During this second course you will explore the pathway to empathy and ways and means to develop young people. Your aim is to help students to competently communicate, cooperate and collaborate to get the best out of themselves and others.

Attendees will participate in different games and activities to Workshop One and be taken further and deeper into the language, concepts and philosophy that defines the Play Is The Way® process.

If Workshop One has been of noticeable benefit to your teaching practice then Workshop Two  will further increase your effectiveness and add more substance and meaning to the teacher/student connection.

Outcomes

  • Increase your repertoire of games and activities.
  • Discover ways to actively foster empathy.
  • Improve your games facilitation skills.
  • Re-energise your batteries.
  • Stand in the shoes of your students.
  • Refresh your enthusiasm for teaching.
