Special Presentation - Emotional Intelligence with Philip Butler

No thanks, I’ve already got enough to think about: Why we need to make some time for Emotional Intelligence.

In contemporary education circles, emotional intelligence is fast becoming the new buzz word. Is it just another new fad, or can it really have dramatic effects on the pedagogy and the learning, providing educators with greater understanding of themselves, their colleagues and the families they engage with on a daily basis. Becoming emotionally intelligent can unlock opportunities to enhance your self and the get to know others you work with better.

Special Presentation - Learning environments with Ben Walker from Semann and Slattery Am I setting up a learning environment or simply reacting to the environment?

In this session we will unpack learning environments for children. Too often we find ourselves simply reacting to our environment which leads us to decisions that have little intention behind them. Imagine the environment that you would love to have. What does it look, feel, sound and smell like? How is function, form and learning linked to the environment? What theorists can we research to find inspiration? In this two-hour session we will unpack the environment, its impact on learning and our role in this space.

Special Presentation - Reflective Practice in the Everyday - with Semann and Sattery Developing professional skills in early childhood education and care extends beyond attending professional development sessions or training courses. Focusing on internal and external supervision, coaching and mentoring, developing work places that focus on learning, and supporting educators to become reflective practitioners, are equally critical in developing the identity of the practitioner in early childhood education & care. This workshop will assist educators to recognise their own limitations, and encourage them to be open and reflective which most aspire to achieve. Individuals will come to acknowledge that we as practitioners take many of our beliefs for granted when working with children, families and other professional colleagues, thus, we need to be provoked to consider our differences. This workshop will challenge participants to move from professionally driven practices to child-focused & family-centred practices, taking into consideration their personal values and beliefs.

Special Presentation - Relationships Matter - with Julie Boxhall from Semann and Slattery Relationships Matter

Positive relationships with children are essential in supporting children’s health, well-being and their ongoing learning and development. Children who experience trusting, responsive and warm relationships are more motivated to develop their own positive relationships with others now and throughout their lives. Consequently, developing positive relationships with children is fundamental to the National Quality Standards and EYLF.

This training session will explore key understandings in building positive relationships with children, including our image of the child and how that impacts on our overall relationships.

It will unpack what positive relationships look like and how this translates in our everyday practice. The session also allows time for participants to reflect on their current practices and the thinking behind these. Participants will also become more aware of practices that strengthen relationships and build a greater confidence in articulating their thinking to others.

Special Presentation - Relationships with Children and Families that make a difference

Relationships with Children and Families that make a difference

Yep you guessed it is all about relationships. Why? Because they make a difference. One might argue that when we have relationships organised then most things might fall into place, however relationships are complex. With children, they require attunement and deep connection. With families, they require understanding, patience and compassion. In this two part session we will explore the ways in which we can move towards better relationships and strengthen our connection with each other.

NEW

Special Presentation - Rethinking professional identity - with Anthony Semann Professional identity is a complex web of what we think we are and what we do and what others think we are and what we do. It is a process of re-imagining our roles and challenging the norms. Unfortunately the idea that early childhood education is made up of individuals who unfortunately are lost in their career, or have no other career options prevails. It is time to challenge and re-imagine this image and in this online session we will radicalise ourselves and the images people have held for us.

SPECIAL PRESENTATION - Seeing children outside of outcomes with Anthony Semann Can you imagine a far and distant world where outcomes didn't govern the ways in which children were viewed!

Well here is your chance to see children outside of the EYLF outcomes and to challenge some of the prevailing myths that have come to restrain the thinking of the early childhood educator. Cost $75

Special Presentation - So who am I documenting for anyway - The secret to documentation THEY don’t want us to know with Semann and Slattery Let’s get it straight, when done correctly, documenting children’s learning is not hard, time consuming, or even complicated. In this session we will unpack the document process, reflect upon what you are currently doing, look at the challenges and strengths to different strategies out there, and finally, once and for all settle the debate about who we are doing documentation for anyway. If you want to develop reflective documentation process which include the voice of the children, parents and educators while virtually writing themselves, then this is the training for you. Making documentation work for you, not against you.

Special Presentation - To document or not to document: this is the question - with Anthony Semann Do you often struggle with what, when and how to document? Do you find yourself drowning in the documentation pool of paperwork? There are many challenges people face when documenting learning. During this online session we will enter the world of documentation and grapple with some of the big and little questions which can challenge us. We will explore the power of documentation as well as debunk some of the myths surrounding documentation.

Special Presentation - Working with challenging behaviours: beyond control and conquer - with Semann and Slattery Behaviour in young children is the vehicle to communication with people in their immediate world. When children misbehave, this may be due to their limited ability to communicate, their need to avoid or escape difficult situations, their desire or interest in tangible things, or simply an existing developmental delay or disability. This presentation will address children’s tendencies and behaviour, teachers’ attitude towards problematic children, strategies to involve families in making a positive change, and general strategies or trends that can be used by educators to tackle behaviour in social and educational settings. Making Action Plans (MAPS) is an innovative technique designed for collecting information to facilitate the inclusion of children with challenging behaviours, delays or disability in regular social settings (Snow, Pearpoint & Forest, 1989). This unique person centred approach will be discussed at length, as an advantageous strategy to embrace children with challenging behaviour in the context of their family, friends, and community.
