Pre Conference Educational Experiences – Invitation

We are making many exciting preparations for the 2019 REAIE Biennial Conference Landscapes of Transformation and we are seeking expressions of interest from centres, schools and organisations who might like to host an educational experience that will be an optional extra on our pre-conference day.

The pre-conference experiences for delegates will take place on Thursday 11th July 2019.

Feedback from previous conferences informs us that the REAIE conference delegates enjoy the opportunity to immerse themselves in the local landscape of educational possibilities as well as being provoked by practitioners discussing aspects of their context. Whilst it is desirable to have centres and schools on these tours that have been inspired by the principles of the educational project of Reggio Emilia, Italy, we would also like to open the invitation to other centres, schools and organisations who may provide some other interesting provocations with regard to their environment.

About the pre-conference educational experiences

  • Delegates will be transported by bus to and from the educational sites
  • Tour durations will vary, however, will not exceed two hours in duration
  • The number of visitors to each centre will be limited
  • Delegates will pre-book tours via the REAIE website
  • Costs associated with light refreshments will be reimbursed to the host centres (up to $200)
