The art of teaching is all about




This popular series is designed to influence the learning environment for children and educators. The sessions on offer will inspire, provoke, and provide participants with practical ideas for engaging with children across curriculum areas. This year we take the event online, providing a space for everyone to participate no matter their location.

Part 7: Museums programs to ignite early childhood teaching and learning
Presented by Dr Sarah Young
Date: Wednesday 27 October
Time: 4.00pm – 5.30pm

This webinar is for early childhood educators and will focus on how museums and galleries are places to ignite and develop early childhood curriculum. These cultural institutions provide opportunities for children to engage with novel artefacts that have the potential to develop specific and detailed understandings of various concepts. Join Sarah to explore how museums and galleries offer children and teachers specific artefacts that can transform early childhood programs.

This event is suitable for all early childhood professionals
