Workshops and Seminars
REAIE workshops and seminars offer participants the opportunity to explore key concepts and generate new understandings about the educational project of Reggio Emilia.
Each year, we offer a series of workshops in different locations around Australia and work in collaboration with the REAIE Network Groups to offer seminars and events that support local communities to engage with the concepts of the Reggio Emilia educational project. On request, we create bespoke workshops and programs that can be tailored to the participating early childhood service or school. Contact Karen Szydlik, REAIE’s Professional Learning Coordinator, to learn more.
The educational project of Reggio Emilia – workshop series
An introduction to Reggio Emilia
The REAIE Introduction to Reggio Emilia is a 3 hour seminar on the history, philosophy and educational practices of the educational prooject of Reggio Emilia. Unpacking the organisation of, and approach taken by, the Infant Toddler Centres, Pre-Schools and Primary School in Reggio Emilia, this session is suited to those who are wanting to know more about this remarkable place and its world renowned approach to Education. Participants will hear about the principles of the Educational Project and come to understand how they shape the pedagogy and experience of an entire system of educators, children and families.
This seminar is intended as an introduction to the educational project of Reggio Emilia together with an insight into how the Reggio Emilia approach is interpreted in the Australian context. It provides an important foundation for other REAIE workshops and seminars.
Invited Speaker Series
Launched in 2016, the Invited Speaker Series celebrates the ways that Reggio Emilia has shaped the work and thinking of Australian educators and allowed them to make deep connections between children, contexts and education.
