VESS IV is an opportunity for personal and professional reflection on the individual’s holistic development. Attendees go through a personal and empathetic reflection process that allows them to understand the relevance of their students’ comprehensive and integral development. Through emotional intelligence and mindfulness strategies, as well as the exploration of relevant theoretical trends, they acquire the tools and foundations to include emotional development as part of the curriculum as well as the planning, learning/teaching, and assessment processes.
The VESS V training is about establishing educational transformation through assessment. Attendees understand planning and assessment as dynamic and simultaneous processes that allow for the implementation of the cultural change the team has brought about. They understand that assessments determine the expectations of an educational culture and its learning objectives, and direct all the teaching and learning processes. This allows participants to work in groups to plan meaningful learning that transcends the school and contributes to the individual’s holistic development, guaranteeing they have the understanding, knowledge, skills, and attitude to live a VESS life.
