Teaching for Peace – ISJS Summer Program

Residential Teacher Training Program — July 3 – 23, 2023

International School for Jain Studies

This 3-week experience is designed for K-12 teachers, educators who wish to integrate practical nonviolence into their lives, classrooms and schools. This program is based on experiential learning, summarized by the acronym, L.O.V.E. Learn in the classroom, Observe all over, Visualize or contemplate, and Experience.

Intensive course work entails morning lectures, afternoon discussions, field trips to institutions practicing nonviolence, such as schools and businesses, interactions with people who live a nonviolent lifestyle, as well as conversations with learned scholars. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to develop new ideas and add breadth and depth to your curriculum through collaboration with like-minded, enthusiastic colleagues. If desired, participants may do additional coursework to earn three graduate credits.
