KU Children’s Services launches podcast to foster learning
KU Children’s Services has launched a new podcast, known as ‘Provoking Minds’, with content aimed towards early childhood education and care (ECEC) professionals.
Featuring some of the ECEC sector’s most experienced educators and subject matter experts, the episodes will explore and discuss meaningful topics in early childhood education.
CEO Christine Legg said KU Children’s Services was “very excited” to be launching the podcast, and to be partnering with experts with unique voices and perspectives to create more opportunities for learning and connecting during these uncertain times.
Each short episode, she added, will provide an opportunity to pause, listen and reflect on practice, with the ultimate aim of the podcast being to provoke minds and inspire excellence in early childhood education.
The inaugural episode has been released, and features infant and toddler care expert Lynn Farrell. Focussing on infant-toddler relationships and wellbeing, Ms Farrell shares her thoughts as well as reflecting on her professional growth and learning, research and child rights.
A range of relevant topics will be explored in future episodes, including sustainability, behaviour and attachment, visual arts, literature and critical reflection.
Internationally renowned early childhood expert Ann Pelo will also feature in the series.
