The Online Conferences
for Grades 1-8

The Online Conferences are not merely a substitute for “live” conferences. Rather, they are a re-imagination of what a teachers’ conference can be. They utilize audio files of lectures, slideshows of student work, and training films. Click on the button below for details, contents, and samples of conference lectures and videos.

Rudolf Steiner Course

Eugene Schwartz has created the first online exploration of Rudolf Steiner's life and work. His aim is to both deepen and broaden our understanding of Steiner’s contributions to the modern world. The result is a series of lectures that explore Steiner’s biography, the times in which he lived, and, above all, the significance of his spiritual path. Click on the button below to learn more.

Free Slideshows of Student Work

One of the most powerful testimonies of the efficacy of Waldorf education is the high quality of the work that students produce. Sadly, very little of this work has been photographed, and even less has found its way online. To mitigate this deficit, Eugene Schwartz has created a set of remarkable slideshows highlighting the work of students in Grades 1-8, with illuminating written commentary.

Waldorf 20/20

In 2019, Waldorf and Rudolf Steiner schools worldwide will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the first Waldorf school in Stuttgart, Germany, in the fall of 1919. This series of lectures, however, sets its sights on the year after 2019, when the Waldorf movement will wonder whether Waldorf schools have what it takes to thrive — or even survive — for a second hundred years.
