“Teaching, a profession for not thinking small.” Loris Malaguzzi
13-14 November 2020, Dubai
Learning is a process of constant communication and inclusive exchange. Embracing children and teachers as active agents and collaborative participants in the learning process requires a new conversation about children, childhood and education.
This conference offers the recognition of agency and participation as important concepts for international educators and schools to consider. It aims to stimulate a conversation that is founded on the fundamental rights of children. It will explore participation and agency as central forces that activate learning in the early years, explored through four different lenses. During the conference delegates will have the opportunity to hear all four keynote presentations and then select two ‘deep dive’ workshops where ideas will be exchanged and thinking stimulated about agency and participation through different lenses and perspectives.
