This workshop is designed to introduce participants to the philosophy and theories behind the Reggio Emilia approach and how it can be adapted in their setting.
Why is the Reggio Emilia approach important to the field of early childhood education? Newsweek (Hinckle, 1991) hailed the Reggio Emilia approach as one of the best educational programs in the world. As a result of this, many early childhood educators are trying to implement the approach in their own classrooms. If early childhood educators are to adapt and use this highly regarded educational approach, classroom teachers, and pre-service teachers must be taught to understand and develop strategies for adapting the approach into their setting.
The workshop is specially designed for all educators of early childhood and primary age children, those responsible for early childhood pre-service and in-service teacher education and all who are seeking to understand children and learn about innovative and effective ways to help children reach their academic potential.
