This module is designed to help participants understand the meaning of vision and philosophy, and explore how a vision and philosophy can be used effectively within early and middle childhood settings.
In this course, you will:
- explore the concepts of vision and philosophy and their relationship to the National Quality Framework
- be introduced to theories related to the concepts
- examine case studies and resources
- apply their understanding through an interactive exercise and encourage them to develop a sample vision and philosophy for their setting.
Completing ‘Philosophy leading strategy’ will contribute 2 hours of PD addressing standards 7.1 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
