ELP Lecture Series - March lecture - 7–9pm

Presented by Tania Bullick

Last year, at Tania’s lecture, we took a look at the theorists and theories that inform our practices today from Montessori, Froebel and Piaget to theories of behaviourism, attachment and development.  This year Tania’s lecture will be looking at contemporary theories that inform our thinking and practices for the 21st century learner.  Drawing on the writings of William Stixrud and Ned Johnson in their books ’The Thriving Child’ and ’The Self-driven Child’, this lecture will explore not only the child as learner but also the teacher as learner and how the wellbeing, belonging, competence and empowerment of each of us is key to quality early childhood education.
