Critical Reflection 0 - 2 (South)
Wed., 10/05/2017, 6:30 pm – Thu., 11/05/2017, 8:30 pm AEST
Critical reflection is a necessary component of professionalism in early childhood education and it is important for early childhood educators to understand the ways critical reflection is defined and what it looks like in practice.
There is a common misconception that critical reflection is about finding fault or criticising an event or the actions of those involved. A useful definition for critical reflection relates more to a professional attitude that allows educators to look at an event from a range of perspectives and ask questions about that event to develop new ways of thinking and understanding.
These sessions focus on:
- Examining the notion of critical reflection
- Discussing the unique traits of children in the 0-2 age group
- Reflecting on some challenging ideas about working with infants
- Examining the concept of children’s rights and how they apply to working with infants and toddlers
These sessions are aimed at educators working with infants and toddlers or with previous experience working with infants and toddlers.
Dates: Wednesday 10th May, 6.30pm - 8.30pm and Thursday 11th May, 6.30pm - 8.30pm (over 2 consecutive evenings)
Cost: $99 (plus GST)
