We are delighted to announce that you can now register for our free webinar: No researchers in white coats: Developing professional learning through educator enquiry in early years settings.

Taking place on Wednesday, 8 June from 7pm to 8.30pm, our keynote speaker is Professor Kate Wall,  Professor of Education, Strathclyde University.

The title of Prof. Wall’s presentation is ‘Practitioner enquiry communities in early childhood settings: ensuring it is pragmatic and playful’.

Responding will be Sharon Skehill, Manager and Teacher in the Willows Outdoor Preschool, Co. Galway and Lecturer in Early Childhood Studies in Mary Immaculate College, Limerick.

She will use her real-life experiences with practitioner enquiry in her setting while presenting on ‘Empowerment through voice: Action research as a means of supporting quality and meaningful participation for children and educators in the early years setting’.

Early Childhood Ireland shares Professor Wall’s view that early years educators are already skilled researchers, seeing and interpreting the intricacies in children’s play. A practitioner enquiry approach marries research and professional learning, using enquiry-based tools to explore playful pedagogy and children’s perspectives through play.

This event will be of interest to:

  • Early years providers, managers, and educators
  • Education lecturers and researchers
  • Those concerned with improving quality and sustaining high-quality practice and curriculum in settings
  • Those concerned with continuous professional development and learning in early childhood settings

This event is free of charge and open to all to register.
