Many of our guiding Documents and Frameworks make references to dispositions. But what do we mean by dispositions? Bravery, interdependency and wonderment are just three examples of essential dispositions - not only for children but also for the adults who work alongside them. Dispositions are environmentally sensitive attitudes and ways of being that, when identified and nurtured, can be powerful enablers of learning in our settings. During this webinar, the three dispositions of bravery, interdependency and wonderment will be explored to understand why we need to consider and embrace dispositions more fully as positive stances for our work. Stories from practice will be shared, and connections to play and inquiry will be made.
For information regarding teacher registration and accreditation, contact the teacher registration board /institute in your state.
