On Thursday 16 May 2019, the last action of the Teacher Education Program of the Athens University of Economics and Business took place for the year 2018-2019. The students of the program, together with the responsible teacher Dr. Vasiliki Brinia and in collaboration with the "Geopedia" Organization, carried out an Environmental Education Action at Pedion Areos, next to the Athens University of Economics and Business. The action was titled "Walking, Discovering, Learning". The aim of the field research was to enable students to organize an educational field research with environmental content and to use the natural environment as a means of experiential learning in their teaching work.
On Wednesday, May 8, 2019, on the eve of the conference of the Teacher Education Program of the Athens University of Economics and Business, entitled "The Teacher: Different Aspects and Perspectives", work on the implementation of the "annual celebration" of the program was completed. After receiving the latest guidelines from the responsible teacher, Dr. Vassiliki Brinia, on the roles of the students and the way the conference was held, the students of the program, on the occasion of a text by the writer and psychotherapist Irvin Gialom, discussed two important concepts: The human contact and the pedagogical relationship. Both were turning around the concept of the teacher. Students, as future teachers, have realized that the pedagogical relationship starts through human relations. It is built by visual contact and does not cover the Cognitive Area, as defined by Bloom and his associates, but the Emotional Area. It has been understood that the pedagogical relationship is not easy to create properly and completely, since there is the possibility of rejection of the teacher by his pupils for this reason every teacher should accept and not tolerate the diversity of his pupils.

Mrs. Katerina Alexiadou, responsible for cultural programs of Eastern Attica secondary education and Mr. Theodoros Panas a distinguished dancer and choreographer, gave the stimuli to students to understand, as future teachers, that is not enough to take care only their spirit keeping them constantly alert, but also their body.
