Description

Some of the dominant discourses in education are to tell, to transmit, to plan with a focus on an endpoint or a product. But what if we position ourselves in our work with children, families and colleagues as a listener? As someone who is open to the many possibilities and pathways that may present themselves to us? How can listening support us to think about our planning and our interactions differently? And what is the role of documentation in this way of working?

 

Upon completion of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Articulate with colleagues the importance of listening as a strategy in relation to planning, practice and collegiality
  • Make links between the educator’s role as a listener and the role of documentation to support professional learning, planning, designing and communicating 
  • Begin to develop some strategies for supporting listening in your setting, encouraging and sustaining a culture of inquiry
