Rebellious Teaching Online-Masterclass

press invitation


“Rebellious Teaching” is excited to announce its very first online Masterclass, “Go Rebel: Use the Collective Creativity of Groups”, hosted by conversation designer Ruben Klerkx.

The free workshop will take place on the 9th of December between 1 and 2:15 pm on Zoom. It is open to anyone curious about how to make the most out of ideas in a group setting – because the more ideas you can generate as a team, the greater your innovative power becomes! The Masterclass is also a great opportunity to explore the possibilities of online collaborations, showing that video conferences in times of a pandemic can be as interesting and inspiring – or even more so – as live meetings.

In this workshop you will learn why we share so few of our ideas, and you will experience how you can adapt your interactions to optimise exchange and sharing in groups online and offline. The result? The collective creativity and intelligence of your group/class/team increases. One thing is certain: after this workshop, your online and group sessions will look totally different! The event will be followed by a Q&A round hosted by Die Junge Akademie’s member Nausikaä El-Mecky, who leads the Rebellious Teaching project.

Both Ruben Klerkx and Nausikaä El-Mecky are available for interviews.

Date Wednesday, 9th of December between 1:00 and 2:15 pm (CET)

Partecipation Places are limited. Registration is required: diejungeakademie.de The free event will take place digitally in English via Zoom.
