Preconference

On the afternoon and evening before the official opening of Katacon Europe 2018, we open the doors for two special groups of people for practical training and networking.

13:00-17:00 Kata in the Classroom—for teachers and school leaders

Venue: Dutch Design Hotel Artemis, John M. Keynesplein 2, 1066 EP Amsterdam

Imagine that everything we do can be seen as patterns of thinking and behaviour that we have learned through our different experiences. Imagine that researchers have identified a specific pattern, that follows a scientific approach and leads to increased creativity and ability to solve difficult challenges.

That pattern has become a well-known phenomenon in development work and problem-solving around the world, and has been named Improvement Kata and Coaching Kata by Mike Rother.

The applications are endless. Now, we hope that this meta skill of knowledge development will spread to children and young people in Europe.

Whats in it for you as a teacher?
