The application of Nature’s principles of Harmony to teaching and learning could contribute to teacher well-being as well as having a positive impact on teaching and learning. This is one of the key messages from research conducted by Canterbury Christ Church University into the educational potential of a Harmony approach to curriculum development.
The report also highlights the appeal of this approach to schools in very different contexts, and the value to students, who see a Harmony approach to learning as inclusive and child-led.
It is an approach that has generated considerable interest both nationally and internationally and aims to integrate Harmony principles into mainstream education and to transform the way education is delivered.
Between May and July 2019, researchers at Canterbury Christ Church University carried out semi-structured interviews with senior leaders from ten schools in England who are engaging with the principles of Harmony. The aim was to explore the educational potential of a Harmony approach in varied settings
The research was conducted by research intern Julie Marshall and the project was led by Nicola Kemp and Alan Pagden.
