2019 Korczak Summer Institute

Child Advocacy in Action: The Legacy in Janusz Korczak 

From July 2–11, 2019, the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Education, in co-operation with the Janusz Korczak Association of Canada, will present the first Janusz Korczak Summer Institute. The institute welcomes pre-service and practicing teachers, social workers, and other professionals committed to the rights and welfare of youth. Successful completion of the institute can earn credit for degree completion, advancement on pay grids and fulfillment of continuing professional licensure requirements for various regulated professions.

http://pdce-sandbox.sites.olt.ubc.ca/files/2018/08/Young-Girl-Looking-Up_250x250_web.jpgThe institute is designed to help educators:

  • transform classrooms to model democratic principles pioneered by Korczak in his writings, pedagogy, and governance of the orphanages under his care
  • adopt strategies to translate the respect for children’s rights into school practices, including communication with parents and the larger school community
  • engage in an interdisciplinary inquiry that will integrate insights from social paediatrics, nutrition, and the legal foundation of protecting children with innovative approaches to classroom management and ideas for extracurricular activities
  • develop necessary skills to increase and enrich communications with students to help them advance their communication competencies
  • discover Korczak-inspired modern pedagogical approaches to support students’ social-emotional health and development of personal and social responsibility
  • learn how to help children in developing and sustaining their cultural identity, particularly among those who may struggle with multiple identities.

The institute is available for both credit and non-credit options, depending upon individual needs. For more information about the 2019 Korczak Summer Institute.

When: Tuesday, July 2 to Thursday, July 11, 2019. No classes Saturday and Sunday. 
Where: UBC Vancouver Campus
