Koulu (i.e. ‘School’) is a festival for peer-learning in Lapinlahti Helsinki 25th-26th August. Half of the School lessons are in Finnish but half of them are in English. The lessons in English are taught by Aalto Design Students. These lessons run from 11-18.30 on Saturday 25th. Their themes will be published on the notice board in Lapinlahti on Saturday. Check the School timetable for other lessons (in Finnish): Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th. See the map of the area.
Idea of Koulu
Koulu (i.e. ‘School’) is a festival for peer-learning. What if everyone you knew came to one place to teach something they know well? At once, you might have the chance to learn anything from illustration to arranging block parties, public speaking or reducing your carbon footprint. What would you teach?
Everyone has skills and knowledge that others want to learn. That’s why Demos Helsinki and Helsinki Festival put on Koulu (i.e. ‘School), a carnival of sharing skills and knowledge, on 24–26 August 2012. For one weekend we will take over a derelict mental hospital in Helsinki to learn from each other.
Koulu is organised by Demos Helsinki and Helsinki Festival and supported by Aalto University and Sitra. It’s free for teachers and their friends. If you don’t dare to teach yourself or don’t have time to do so, you can buy a ticket at the door or in Lippupalvelu.
Would you like to teach something?
SIGN UP FOR TEACHERS HAS CLOSED! THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR APPLYING!
We believe that anyone can teach and that learning is at its best when shared with others. Peer teachers aren’t expected to be experts in their area but rather passionate learners who care to share their own experiences.
Anyone can teach, in any language – if you would wish to do so, suggest a 15min/45min/90min/non-stop lesson to Oskari: oskari.niitamo(a)demos.fi.
Demos will offer teacher training in Pre-School on Thursday 9th August, at 17-20, at WDC Pavilion. And 24th August in Lapinlahti. We will help you create an exciting plan for your lesson.
