Reggio Emilia Approach & Inquiry-Based Practice

The Ministry of Education has recently adopted an inquiry-based approach in BC. This redesigned curriculum encourages teachers and students to learn by asking and answering their own questions. In-depth projects bring focus to process and provide the students with the flexibility needed to capture their ideas on topics that raise their interest.

Educators at Reggio Emilia have been involved with the idea of inquiry-based practice and project-based learning for many years.

On February 22nd, Lella Gandini, the co-editor of The Hundred Languages of Children will speak about the Reggio Emilia approach and its experiences with the Inquiry-Based practice. Lella will be sharing videos and stories from the project "An Amusement Park for Birds" (from the students of La Villeta School in Reggio Emilia) to walk us through the process of in-depth projects and the role of observation and documentation in facilitating them.

In the Spirit of the Studio

In the past few years as educators in BC have explored the Reggio Emilia approach and searched for possibilities within their own culture and reality, they have come across the idea of the Studio in Early Years and school settings and the many ways it can inspire their practice.

On February 23rd, Lella Gandini, the co-author of In the Spirit of the Studio will take us on a journey filled with possibilities, creativity and imagination as she reflects on some of the stories from her book, speaks about the role of the atelier in school, and guides us through exploration of children's many languages as we play and interact with clay.

Regular (July 12, 2018 - January 31, 2019): $240

Late Register (February 1, 2019 - February 15, 2019): $260
