Are you inspired by the possibilities that come with engaging with new ideas? Are you interested in being part of a learning community that lifts you out of the foundational frameworks that we work with and gives you the space and the opportunity to turn your thinking to the gritty ideas, theories and approaches that are currently being played within early childhood education? Over 6 live sessions, across 7 months we will journey together as we celebrate the joys and the complexity that early childhood education has to offer us as educators.
Supporting sustained learning and your development as an intelligent educator who brings a critical thinking to your work with young children, each session will be shaped around the relationship of theory in practice. You will make meaningful connections with practice through the insights that you make and the opportunity to engage in a dynamic discussion with like-minded colleagues. With the purpose of being the lynchpin of our discussions, we will be drawing upon a range of resources, and from time to time, there will also be a small amount of reading associated with sessions (such as an excerpt or quote).
Educators will be provided with suggested reading and resource lists post sessions, along with a journal to document their ideas and reflective thinking. Let 2020 be the year that you reignite your simmering interest in the gritty ideas reflect the true complexity of our work with young children.
