Pedagogy of Place – Community and Curriculum

Tue 28 March, Tue 2 May, Tue 27 June, Tue 8 August 2017

Creating a sense of belonging for children is as much about connecting to place as it is about connecting to people. A place based approach offers many possibilities to educators designing learning experiences for children. Central to this approach is a belief that children have rights as our youngest citizens. Building partnerships with community enables children to learn through ‘many doors’ and not only understand the ‘pulse of their future lives’ (Nimmo) but learn how their ideas can shape the here and now. This short course will support services to develop strong and diverse collaborative partnerships within their local communities that link to children’s lives, interests and learning.
We will re-imagine the connection with community as part of early and middle year’s pedagogy and identify possible pathways for curriculum development.

Participants will have the opportunity to explore:

  • The place of community in quality children's services and in realising outcomes for children
  • Developing curriculum linked to children's lives and learning in their local community
  • Planning and documentation of community curriculum for individuals and groups
    Strengthening and diversifying community connections
  • Building social capital for and with children, families and communities
