We are delighted to offer an inaugural event for teachers in the Hamilton area who are interested and inspired by the pedagogy of Reggio Emilia.
This seminar day will be an opportunity to learn more about the notion of the pedagogy of listening through presentations and discussion groups.
This seminar day will be facilitated and presented by REANZ trust members Lesley Pohio, Helen Aitken & Glenys Waller along with our guest presenters Shelley Jolly & Tracey McAllister from St James Kindergarten in Auckland
The day will include a range of presentations, discussions and visual examples of visible listening within our work with children.
Central to our discussion will be how as teachers in Aoteraoa New Zealand we can be inspired by pedagogy from Reggio Emilia Italy, whilst simply avoiding replication.
GUEST PRESENTERS – SHELLEY JOLLY & TRACEY McALLISTER
In this presentation we will open our door and welcome you to share a visual feast of how our physical and social environment strives to reflect responsive, reciprocal and meaningful listening. The presentation will also provide practical ideas and inspiration through documentation and discussion. Links will be made to the pedagogy of listening from Reggio Emilia, and how we have used this knowledge to create our own unique Whāriki.
REANZ’s Commitment to connect with Regions outside of Auckland: We are hoping that this Seminar day will also be an opportunity to form a Waikato network group who can continue to foster & disseminate information relating to REANZ and Reggio inspired practice. Could this be you?
