Jahorina, Bosnia & Herzegovina
Do you want to apply Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in education?
Are you longing for more skills and want to learn from others?
Are you already applying NVC in education and you want to share your experiences and get fresh inspiration?
Would you like to experience what mutual education really feels like?
The LEE Lab is created for everybody interested in exploring and applying Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in education, including, adult students, kindergarten teachers, school and university teachers, child care staff, administrators, counsellors, educators in youth programs, parents, NVC trainers, Certification Candidates, and all NVC practitioners.
The LEE Lab has a common vision for mutual education and is part of a international movement. It is an inclusive space for exchange and learning with experienced trainers, who are there to create the frame, hold space, offer guidance and feedback, motivation and input.
Whoever you are, wherever you are and whatever your level of Nonviolent Communication, if you are interested in this experience of mutual learning YOU are welcome to join us.
Why should you come?
“The LEE Lab gave me a lot of inspiration on how to organise trainings with co-creation, inclusion, participation. It raised my awareness on power-with vs. power-over paradigm.”
“I learned and experienced a new way of sharing knowledge, with curiosity and fun.”
INTEGRATION OF NVC
“The LEE Lab contributes to my further ability to embody and implement NVC for myself and at school.”
“Meeting other people sharing the same dreams and the co-creation of an incredible experience together supported me as I learned.
What will happen there?
Concretely and very practically we will work on how to:
- Co-create a safe and supportive learning and working environment including pupils, teachers, parents and administration staff.
- Role model partnership, inclusion and cooperation – cultivate emotional intelligence, respect, and compassion.
- Resolve conflicts and prevent or de-escalate violence.
- Support pupils to know their potential find intrinsic motivation to learn.
- Build communication skills which support standing up for own needs while also taking in the perspective of others and the community as a whole.
- Create the classroom you always dreamed of.
Example of what a day might look like:
- Community meeting: Remembering, group decision making and planning of the day
- Parallel offers from the trainers: deepening skills and awareness
- Parallel offers by everyone, e.g. sharing best practices, learning from different work and projects , open space
- Community meeting: Reflection & harvesting the learnings
- More sharing if wanted or leisure activities
Work will be in English language and we will ensure translation support in case of a need.
