Superdiversity in ECE

8:00pm, 28 May, 2019 / 
In this webinar Dr Angel Chan and Associate Professor Jenny Ritchie, in conversation with The Education Hub’s Dr Vicki Hargraves, will discuss the application of a Tiriti o Waitangi based superdiversity approach to informing equitable, inclusive, and culturally responsive teaching in early childhood education in Aotearoa New Zealand. The webinar will unpack key concepts and terminologies, as well as discuss their implications for ECE teachers, children and their whānau. Angel and Jenny will draw on their experience as researchers in this area to discuss what ECE teachers should know and be thinking about, as well as practical actions and approaches they can employ in their own centres. There will be an opportunity throughout the webinar to ask questions.

We currently offer 4 types of events:

Seminars: researchers discuss their research specifically for a teacher audience, offering rich insights together with practical ideas and strategies

Educator Q+As: for teachers, by teachers. Expert teachers share how they are applying particular research in their teaching practice and offer practical strategies and resources

Learning circles: provide teachers with the opportunity to delve deeper into the research, and to discuss particular research findings and reports with each other, and guided by an expert facilitator

Report launches: we aim to release two research reports each year. Each release will have an accompanying event, which will delve into the main themes and implications of the report.
