Lectures & Seminars

Lectures and Seminars – in person and online

Sven Saar offers talks, workshops and lectures on a range of Steiner Waldorf topics. These last between 75 and 90 minutes and can be adapted to public or professional audiences. Most talks use audio-visual projection, and all have been described as engaging, entertaining and inspiring.

Below are some examples. All lectures and seminars can also be delivered online: extensive practice during the Covid restrictions has allowed me to develop a lively and effective presentation style. You can choose from a large variety of topics, including

  • Anthroposophical study and Inner Work
  • Professionalism and Teachers Standards
  • Geography
  • History
  • Form Drawing
  • Mentoring
  • Lesson planning and Implementation
  • School leadership
  • The Moving Classroom
  • The planetary qualities as a help for understanding pupils and getting to know one’s self
  • Sex Education and Gender
  • Equality and Diversity
  • The role of Drama and Recitation
  • Working with parents
