Exploring the impact of hierarchy in our learning-teaching spaces

Playing with learning and teaching structures for individuals and groups.

In this workshop, we offer to circle together around the theme of hierarchy, its structures, and its presence in our teaching spaces.

We wish to start off with activities that will open our awareness to our own perceptions. Next, we will embody and sense into the impact of certain learning-teaching structures. Finally, we will move into practical sharing and exchanges in small groups to apply the fruits of our explorations. The discoveries that emerge belong to everyone. As facilitators, our intention and responsibility is to create and hold a safe container, in which we can explore and play together. 

Our hope is that these elements lead us to deepen our awareness of the presence and impact of hierarchy in ourselves, our students, and the relationships we forge together in the spaces we share.
