    Critical reflection is a key feature of the National Quality Framework, as it strongly influences quality in education and care settings, and contributes to ongoing quality improvement.  Educators who understand how to critically reflect on practice are able to identify areas for practice improvement and contribute to improved learning and development outcomes for children. Both the EYLF and MTOP refer to ongoing learning and reflective practice as one of the principles that support effective education and care. This is also highlighted in Element 1.3.2 of the National Quality Standard - ‘critical reflection on children’s learning and development, both as individuals and in groups, drives program planning and implementation'. However, currently over 10 % of services across Australia fail to meet this element, according to current ACECQA data. This conference is designed to build educator's capacity to understand what it means to critically reflect on practice. During the day, we will:

    • Learn about what makes reflection critical.

    • Apply the principles of critical reflection to practice scenarios.

    • Think about how our own perspectives influence our curriculum decisions, and learn how to recognise them.

    • Consider strategies to build a culture of inquiry at your service, to support ongoing critical reflection.

    • Learn about the links between critical reflection and improved learning and development outcomes for children.

    • Discuss how to make critical reflection evident in your practice, so that you can be confident in demonstrating this in Assessment and Rating.

      Come and join us for this full day event, and leave with confidence and strategies to implement at your service the very next day......

    Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea included.

    Completing the Exceeding the National Quality Standard Conference will contribute 5 hours and 30 minutes towards NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) early childhood teacher accreditation.
