"What's Theory got to do with it - Connecting theory with the real world"

According to the EYLF and My Time, Our Place, our professional practice needs to be supported by theory, but what does this actually mean in practice, and how is it relevant to the ‘real world’? This session aims to take the mystery out of “theory” by providing an overview of some of the key theoretical perspectives and through real-world examples, explore how these relate to everyday practice. We will also consider some effective ways to document the link between theory and practice in your program. You will come out of this session feeling confident with your grasp on key theorists, having up to date knowledge of some of the latest theoretical perspectives, and with a whole new understanding for how this all connects up with practice.
