This 10-week program provides professionals with theoretical and practical knowledge to strengthen their pedagogy to guide children’s behaviour in respectful and responsive ways.
You will seek to identify, through action research and critically reflective dialogue, the role individual culture plays in each child’s learning journey, and create a plan for meaningful support, change or learning within your own environment.
Each Community of Practice contains carefully curated professional learning resources to support and expand your knowledge based on the chosen topic area. Your engagement with the learning materials will foster deeper thinking and facilitate conversation about pedagogy and practice. Choosing to be part of a Community of Practice will take your learning experience to the next level.
