Pedagogical Approaches – Methods of Engagement and Involvement

Date(s) - 15/01/2014
9:30 am - 3:30 pm


Presenter – Marie Richardson

Babies and young children are powerful learners, reaching out into the world and making sense of their experiences with other people, objects and events. As they explore and learn, children are naturally drawn to play.

There is a significant body of knowledge showing that many forms of play help children to learn and to become confident learners for the future. Research also shows that a skilled adult who interacts with children in particular ways to enhance their learning is a crucial ingredient in children making good progress.

Delegates will explore the research of many theorists thinking

  • The work of the pioneers will be considered and how looking back and reflecting on what is already in place can make our practice stronger.
  • Maslow, Vygotsky, Bruner, Piaget have all left an imprint, how can we still learn from them, to take our practice forward?
  • Delegates will also consider the work of Claxton, Whalley, Bruce, Laevers and explore how their thinking can influence the shape of our practice.
