Reimagining Our Work: ROW Information Session
Free (Online Event)
Led by a group of eight conveners, ROW is operationally supported by Exchange Press. The conveners seek to create spaces for new and transforming conversations about early childhood education. These conversations will pop-up all-over Canada and the US. Groups will be facilitated by local pedagogical leaders who are invested in a study-for-action approach to bringing equity, play-led learning, and a cycle of inquiry to life in early childhood classrooms.
Drawing inspiration and focus from a book by Ann Pelo and Margie Carter – From Teaching to Thinking: A Pedagogy for Re-imaging Our Work (2018) – ROW seeks to reunite us with a joyful vision for children, childhood and ourselves. Inspired and challenged by the events of the pandemic ROW conveners want to support new conversations where a commitment to equity and social justice will help open the doors to new ways of thinking and being with children, with families, and with each other.
ROW meetings bring together 6 to 10 educators who are committed to meeting and thinking together over a 10-month period. During meetings children’s voices and stories are woven into our conversations to inspire and ground us in our purpose; group members are critical friends who reflect on their stories of practice and the readings with the support the facilitator. Learning will link to action, and participants will support and challenge each other to bring their ideas to life.
