The principles of the Educational Project of Reggio Emilia continue to inspire and engage educators from all educational disciplines across the country, and this has led to an increased demand for professional learning and workshops in Australia. This professional learning program has been designed to advocate for the transformation of children’s education in the Australian context. 

The five-day program will be offered as a blend of synchronous and asynchronous learning opportunities.

This unique program has been developed for experienced educators, teachers or leaders who have been working with the principles of Reggio Emilia in the Australian context for an extended time and who would like to deepen their understanding through ongoing participation and ‘formazzione’.

Participants of this professional learning may be considered as future REAIE Professional Learning Facilitators. 


  • Contexts for Coherent Pedagogy explores a landscape of concepts including complexity, subjectivity, social constructivism and dominant discourses.
  • Values, Ethics and Rights will support participants to gain a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of the role of values, ethics and rights.

  • Pedagogical Co-ordination will trouble the western construct of leadership and consider an alternative.

  • Contexts of Learning reflects on the importance of the environment and the multiplicity of other influences on children’s learning. 

Program costs include:

  • 1 day online asynchronous opportunity to be completed at your own pace
  • 4 days face-to-face professional learning
  • Lunch on each day of the face-to-face training
  • A REAIE $100 book voucher
  • Interconnected Principles Poster and Booklet

The program will be mapped to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers in recognition of the requirements of NESA, VIT and other teaching accreditation bodies.
