Program Description

This one day workshop explores the role of Teachers as Researchers that sits at the heart of the Reggio Emilia Approach®. Exploring this idea through Australian contexts and examples, this workshop is intended for participants who have been learning about the Reggio Emilia Approach® and its application in Australian contexts for some time. It is designed for educators who would like to extend their thinking about the role of the researching teacher and the interconnections between different aspects of the Reggio Emilia Principles to support teachers to work as researchers alongside children and their learning.


Lisa Burman is firstly a teacher, which means she sees herself as a constant learner, fascinated with childhood and the power and joy of learning. She is the Director and Principal Consultant for Lisa Burman Consultants, based in Adelaide, South Australia. Lisa is the author of “Are You Listening? Fostering Conversations that Help Young Children Learn” and the recently published, “Culture of Agency – Fostering Engagement, Empowerment, Identity, and Belonging in the Early Years”. Her favourite times are side-by-side with educators and children as a pedagogical partner in preschools and primary/elementary schools.
