Making a Start: with Environments of Enquiry

THE FIRST DAY will focus on:

  • Essential principles and practice which need to be addressed in systematically undertaking reflective practice
  • The key element Encounter, Enquiry, Exchange, Expression, and how these can underpin your approach (examples of work from Sightlines action-research and preschools of Reggio Emilia)
  • How this approach meets official requirements.

 

THE SECOND DAY  is for those who also wish to build their pedagogy from deep experiences in the natural environment. We will focus on practical experience in a local woodland, addressing the sensibilities and practicalities of learning in nature as part of DEoE practice. It is open to participants on the preceding day, to those who have attended previous introductory days, and to settings who are already engaged with us on DEoE work.
