Creativity in Teaching
These three lectures are on the theme of how to avoid burnout when dealing with the demands of students, colleagues and parents. For the educational task of dealing with students the use of imagination in forming pictures of the destiny of the students will be addressed. For working with parents the use of imaginative perception in structuring productive conversations by asking questions will be the focus of a lecture. For working with colleagues the imaginative perception of placing issues into sleep will be addressed in the last lecture.
