About this event

How does learning happen? An ongoing invitation for transformation.

with: Karyn Callaghan & Kelly Massaro-Joblin

When Ontario’s pedagogy for the early years was introduced in 2014, it opened the door for a transformation of the status quo. In this session, Karyn Callaghan and Kelly Massaro-Joblin will introduce the context and background to this visionary document and the possibilities and challenges it continues to offer for early education in Ontario.

As we question, research, reflect, respond, and co-construct our understanding of the world around us with children and families, we gain new perspectives and new and more complex questions arise. This document is not so much about providing all the answers, but rather is intended to provoke questions – for it is in exploring our questions that learning happens.
