Dr Kate Williams is a lecturer and researcher in the School of Early Childhood at the Queensland University of Technology and is also a registered music therapist. Kate’s research focuses on children’s development of self-regulation and the parenting, educational, and intervention contexts that support this, along with the developmental outcomes associated with children’s self-regulatory functioning.
In completing this course, you will:
- discover why self-regulation is a critical skill that develops in early childhood and underpins all future learning and wellbeing
- explore the educator’s role in supporting self-regulation development through reflective practice, strong relationships with children and families and embedding self-regulation support strategies into all aspects of planning and the curriculum
- examine how play, the use of language, group games, and music and movement experiences can all support children’s self-regulation skills.
