REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW OPEN for REsearch Conversations for 2021!
REsearch Conversations is a Reggio Emilia Australia Information Exchange (REAIE) network group that meets in the northern suburbs of Sydney, organised by a team of volunteer convenors.
It is designed for teachers and educators who have a desire to intentionally come together to build strong collegial connections and to explore the inspiration and provocation of the educational project of Reggio Emilia in Northern Italy and the implications this has on their own teaching.
Each term we host and facilitate opportunities for educators to connect and learn together through professional conversation, research and the sharing of ideas. A strong value that guides our times together is a commitment to ‘delve deep’ in our thinking about the nature of education, learning and humanity.
We welcome and invite you into a relational space of being together – a space to have genuine and rich conversations, where we can connect, share and regenerate thinking – a space to feel nourished and challenged.
‘Relationships’ are at the heart of our coming together, and key to our discussions in researching together provocations from the Reggio Emilia Infant Toddler Schools in Italy.
