Non-Boring Learning - Designing Embodied Learning Experiences

If you're excited about bringing your energy and enthusiasm to the classroom and facilitating dynamic learning experiences, then this course is for you. 

Non boring learning - designing embodied learning experience is an immersive professional development course for teachers and facilitators who want to enhance their teaching skills through embodied learning techniques. Embodied learning is an educational method that involves the whole body in the learning process, making it more fun, effective, and engaging for both teachers and learners.

The course is designed to provide a dynamic learning environment where participants have the chance to fully experience and embody different activities, techniques, tools, and modules.

Teachers and facilitators who have previously received training in embodied learning have reported increased job satisfaction, making this course an excellent opportunity for educators who are looking to improve their teaching and make it more engaging and effective.

Whether you're teaching at the primary or secondary level, this course will provide you with the tools, techniques, and theoretical background you need to create non-boring, embodied learning experiences.

Learning Outcomes

  • Discover the concept of embodied learning and its application in various subjects.
  • Learn how to use embodied learning to support students in developing social skills, encourage artistic expression, and boost creativity.
  • Develop practical skills in designing and facilitating embodied learning sessions, allowing you to incorporate these techniques into your teaching practices.
  • Create your own Embodied Learning Toolkit, tailored to your teaching style and needs.


In the first part of the course, participants will be introduced to the basic concepts of embodied learning and its theoretical context.

The main body of the course will consist of sessions on how to approach subjects such as Leadership, Maths, Geography, Cooperation, Inclusion, Creativity, Mindfulness, and Critical Thinking through embodied learning. Participants will be immersed in the sessions, allowing them to experience learning through embodiment.

Furthermore, participants will be introduced to the Embodied Learning Toolkit, which will provide them with various possibilities for incorporating embodied learning in their curriculum design. They can then choose the approaches that best suit their teaching style and create their own toolkit to use in their classrooms.

Participants will have the opportunity to develop their own Embodied Learning sessions in small groups and facilitate them for the whole group, with the aim of promoting transferability of their learning back to their school/organisation.
