About this Event

Observation for Decision-Making Purposes (Module 5)

In our daily work, we observe children all the time – but how are we observing, and for what purpose? Knowing what to look for, and the possibilities for responding to what we see and hear, is a crucial part of inquiry-based curriculum, play-based practice, and the building of responsive and meaningful teaching and learning.

In Module 5, educators and leaders will:

• Learn about ‘ways of noticing’ that are useful and usable during our daily work, together with varied methods of taking notes and photos.

• Think through what we are looking for, and how to use the information that we have collected.

• Connect these approaches to the framework in natural and authentic ways, using our relationships with children as one of the cornerstones of our work.

Reflective Practice and How it Applies to Daily Practices with Children (Module 6)

In Module 6, participants will explore how reflective practice connects to the curriculum framework, how to use the Reflective Planning Cycle as a useful tool in our daily lives with children, as well as how to include families in this cycle.

Educators and Leaders will:

• Work through the Reflective Planning Cycle in order to understand its practicality as a tool for reflection in our everyday lives with children

• Reach an understanding of the difference that Reflective Practice can make in the quality of our programs.
