Pantha rhei – everything flows

Twenty-five centuries ago, Heraclitus of Ephesus gave a famous thesis that the main element of philosophy, and perhaps of all life, is change. Despite the passage of time, the Greek philosopher’s words seem to be more relevant than ever. The twenty-first century is the century of changes: brutal and quick, with little to none time to adapt. In addition, the emergence of new technologies has left a lasting impression on all domains of life, including (and perhaps most importantly) the choice of career path.

Emotional Intelligence: identify, harness & manage emotions

It is widely recognized that Emotional intelligence (EI or EQ) is the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of others. Emotional Intelligence inherently includes some essential skills, the most important of which are emotional awareness and the abilities to harness and manage emotions. The concept of EI has been embraced by many educators and educational institutions, in the last 20 years, in the form of programmes and modules focusing on ‘social & emotional learning’ (SEL) skills. It is worth mentioning that many US states have introduced SEL learning as mandatory in the curriculum. In 2002 UNESCO has initiated a worldwide initiative to promote SEL, emphasizing on the importance of someone mastering these essential skills for living. ‘Emotional Intelligence: identify, harness & manage emotions’ equips the participants with knowledge related to the ten basic principles for implementing SEL in educational settings as well as practical tools for managing emotions, recognize others’ emotions and understand the relationship between thoughts and emotions. Moreover, the participants will be hugely benefited by in depth knowledge of classroom related SEL skills, such as listening and talking in ways that resolve conflicts instead of escalating them. This is a masterclass course for school principals, teachers, educators, trainers, business managers & parents.

This is a position paper where the notion of developing environmental literacy through inquiry-based practices is explored. The premise is that one would assume that teachers themselves would have to first become environmentally literate before they can effectively provide opportunities for students to engage in activities to develop environmental literacy. As environmental education is predominantly delivered through an interdisciplinary infusion model, the recommendation is for a teacher’s environmental literacy to be developed alongside their inquiry literacy.
