Description

This PL, repeated from our much-loved 2018-2021 sessions, is designed for early childhood educators (K-2) as an introduction to inquiry, unpacking some of the 'essential elements' of quality inquiry pedagogies through reflective practice activities, practical examples and stories from real classrooms. It will suit those who are new to inquiry-based learning, and those who have perhaps dabbled with inquiry but wish to extend their understanding and implementation. Spaced over 2 days (Terms 3 & 4) with reflective practice activities to undertake between sessions, this PL is designed to support participants to explore the following: 

* Why inquiry? The benefits of inquiry pedagogies.
* What does a quality inquiry approach look like? - at both the lesson level, as well as across a longer-term 'unit of work'.
* How can learning environments support a classroom culture of inquiry? 
* What strategies and tools might promote or enhance inquiry-based learning? 
* How can young children's research be supported - beyond non-fiction books and the internet? 
* How might I plan for inquiry in a responsive way that balances children's interests, ideas and questions with teacher inputs and curriculum expectations? 

Resources to support educators in getting started will be shared. Each participant will receive a copy of each of the following AISWA publications:
* 'Journeys of Inquiry' (2018)
* and 'Further Journeys of Inquiry' (2020)
