A unique program to stop the learning loss cycle.
Concerned about professional development that just doesn’t stick? In the busy world of early childhood education, educators often attend professional development sessions, then come back to their centres inspired and ready to make change, only to get caught up in the day to day reality of work.
Often, our plans for change and improvement get put on the backburner, until they’re so far on the backburner that we’ve forgotten the recipe! Sound familiar? Learning Loops can break this cycle.
We bring you a professional development program targeted to your centre or organisations unique needs by tailoring content to areas relevant to your educators.
Typically, each of the three sessions is offered during a full day or evening and may be offered over a weekend.
Creating the loop – in this session we explore the theoretical underpinnings and practice implications of the areas identified, forming the first curve of the loop. We’ll then discover new possibilities for practice, forming the second and final curve of the loop.
Weaving the magic – in this session we’ll reflect on our learning from session 1, focussing on the practical application of the learning that took place in centres, identifying successes and challenges and posing questions, strategies and possibilities for educators to take back to their centre for implementation and practice.
Linking the loop – in this session we’ll reflect on our learning from session 2, focussing on the practical application of theoretical underpinning explored in Session 1, and planning for continuous reflection, team engagement and practice improvement.
The Learning Loops program is designed for attendance at all three sessions, as sessions are integrated and focus on theory into practice.
Group size is limited to provide for maximum support and sustained learning.
The Learning Loops program provides evidence of critical reflection that supports Quality Area One, Standard 1.2 of the National Quality Standard.
