Exploring the Reggio Emilia Approach

Exploring the Reggio Emilia Approach
Consultant: Dr. Nkechy Ezeh
November 28-30, 2012 Hong Kong

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.

Brain Compatibility: Teaching the Way the Brain Learns

Brain Compatibility: Teaching the Way the Brain Learns
Consultant: Nicki Giegert
September 6-7, 2012 Singapore
September 10-11, 2012 Melbourne, Australia

Brain research over the past twenty years has revealed that best practices in education must be aligned with how the brain learns best. This has resulted in a paradigm shift that educators now recognize as “Brain Compatibility” or “Brain Based Learning”. The brain has been called the last frontier of knowing how the human functions and a concerted effort was made in the 1990’s that involved neuroscientists, biologists, psychologists, cognitive scientists, educational researchers and biochemists to better understand the relationship between the effect of emotions, patterns, meaningfulness, environments, body rhythms, attitudes, stress, trauma, assessment, music, movement, gender, enrichment, and even special needs issues and learning.
