Second Hobart Face-to-Face Seminar

Independent Schools Tasmania is delighted to present a series of spaced, face-to-face, and online professional learning sessions with renowned early childhood education consultant David Gilkes, focusing on the Early Years Learning Framework and the planning cycle in practice.

These sessions will offer educators an opportunity to join with their colleagues and become more confident in their knowledge of the planning cycle, documentation, and the role of assessment.

Some of the topics to be explored will include:

  • What is the EYLF planning cycle? Understandings, misconceptions, and possibilities.
  • How do we notice, listen, document, and effectively collect data about children and alongside children?
  • How do we understand and analyse the learning that is taking place?
  • How do we design curriculums or programs for and with children?
  • What practices do educators use to enhance learning?
  • How do educators review or evaluate learning?
  • Reflective practice – what is this and how do we do it in effective ways?

Using practice examples, we will refine the way we think about and use the planning cycle so that children’s learning is made more visible, and the task seems less overwhelming.

This will be a practical opportunity to ask questions and gain new ideas about how to plan for our student’s learning.
