Program Description

This workshop has been developed to provide a context for the educational project of Reggio Emilia in Australia, as an introduction or a chance to revisit. It is suitable for those at the beginning of their Reggio Emilia journey and also for those wanting to revisit and relaunch their understandings.

The workshop highlights and reinforces the complex structures, role and organisation which underpin the educational project of Reggio Emilia and provides examples where educators have contextualised these provocations in Australian educational settings.

The session focuses on:

• The cultural context and systemic organisation

• The search and research for a different approach to learning and teaching

• The principles of the Reggio Emilia educational project in practice.
