Summer School of Education
Bringing together specialists who care about the future of education.

New humanistic education

Summer School of Education is a summer project by the Universal University dedicated to the study of traditional and the development of new approaches to humanistic education. We have created educational programmes that bring the professional community together and offer new tools for development.

Our project is aimed at teachers and tutors in secondary, higher and professional education who want to learn more about new state-of-the-art teaching techniques; methodologists and designers of educational programmes who are striving to create useful and relevant study experience and executives in education wishing to transform their organizations.
