School on the way to democratic changes

On 24th October, there was held a seminar-training «School on the way to democratic changes» for deputy principals of schools. The event was organized within the frameworks of cooperation between Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast Institute of Postgraduate Pedagogical Education and Methodological Center of the Tysmenytsya District State Administration on the basis of Tysmenytsya Secondary School.

Moderators, master-trainers of project DOCCU Olga Nyzhnyk and Svitlana Klimkovska told the participants about current democratic transformations in the organization of educational process at Modern Ukrainian School in the context of democratic change.

The «open microphone» enabled the audience to analyze the academic responsibility and freedom of every teacher. Trainers also paid much attention to considering the issue of academic integrity and responsibility for its compliance. Participants of seminar-training presented models of democratic school from the point of view of parents, pupils, teachers and public. An interactive exercise «30 seconds» helped to highlight the most important aspects of received information.
