Titled Landscapes of relationships: inspiration, exchange, and dialogue for the future of childhoodthe Symposium adopts the same title as the next REAIE conference.


The Research Symposium seeks to challenge continuing binaries that separate theory and practice and classroom teachers and university researchers. It will be a space which brings teachers and academics together in a shared place of encounter. A place for everyone to participate.


Bringing together a rich array of research perspectives, the Symposium aims to create a platform to share, exchange and stimulate thinking…to excite participant’s understanding of the integral role of educational research, as both underpinning and informing day to day classroom practice. Our intention is to highlight the significance of seeing ourselves as teacher-researchers and to make visible the essential relationship that exists between theory, innovation and classroom practice.


The Research Symposium will be presented in 3 sections.


The morning session will be hosted in our Auditorium (a live Zoom webinar) with Speakers Claudia Giudici – President of Reggio Children, Jan Millikan, founding member of REAIE, and Dr Jane Merewether and Dr Stefania Giamminuti.


In the afternoon attendees will be invited to explore offerings from Reggio Children and to visit our 3 Conference rooms: Inspiration, Exchange & Dialogue. Each room will host presentations from various speakers in the form of pre recorded videos and supporting documentation.


In the evening session you are invited to return to The Auditorium for a Live Q&A with Claudia Giudici and celebrate the 21st Anniversary of REAIE.
