Go Global – Education Talk: Waldorf Education Webinar

The talk aims to facilitate an opportunity for UTAR staff, students, and the public to raise the awareness and learn more about Waldorf education, in particular, how western countries implement different teaching methods to different ages and stages of development of each child and challenges encountered.
