Professional Development Workshop Series 2017-2018

In anticipation of the Wonder of Learning exhibition in 2018, BARIN has drawn inspiration from the exhibit in planning the workshop series this year. This four-part workshop series invites you to begin a dialogue with materials and places, explore the enchantment of writing, and immerse yourself in the ideas and projects shared by our facilitators and speakers.

As a teacher inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach, you have an endless capacity to wonder alongside your students. But how do you turn those “wonderings” into research questions that provoke investigations and projects?  Together with our facilitators and speakers, we will practice articulating observations, build theories, and craft the questions that guide our curriculum.

What is the Reggio Emilia Approach?

Who is Loris Malaguzzi?

The Reggio Emilia approach, founded by Loris Malaguzzi, is based on the principles of respect, responsibility, and community through exploration and discovery in a supportive and enriching environment based on the interests of the children through a self-guided curriculum.

The Reggio Emilia philosophy and approach to early childhood education has developed and and continues to evolve within a system of municipal infant-toddler centers and preschools in Reggio Emilia, Italy.

The late Loris Malaguzzi, leader, philosopher and innovator in education, guided and directed the energies of parents and teachers who began the schools in the 1940’s.

The Reggio Emilia Approach is built upon a solid foundation of connected philosophical principles and extensive experience.

Educators in the Reggio schools believe that children have the right and the ability to express their thinking, theories, ideas, learning and emotions in many ways.

Therefore, Reggio educators provide children with a diversity of experiences, so that children encounter many avenues for thinking, revising, constructing, negotiating, developing and symbolically expressing their thoughts and feelings.

Our task, regarding creativity, is to help children climb their own mountains, as high as possible. No one can do more.

Loris Malaguzzi

Creativity seems to emerge from multiple experiences, coupled with a well-supported development of personal resources, including a sense of freedom to venture beyond the known.

Loris Malaguzzi

Observe and listen to children because when they ask “why?” they are not simply asking for the answer from you. They are requesting the courage to find a collection of possible answers.

Establishing collaborative relationships between teachers from different schools is essential to our work.
