About this event
This is an interactive, virtual training session.
Educators will be encouraged to participate through voice and video in order to collaborate with each other and to practice skill development.
Pedagogical documentation is one of six pedagogical approaches found in How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years.
A pedagogical approach is a strategy that can be used to support learners of all ages. Pedagogical documentation is using documentation as a means to value, discuss, and make learning visible. It is an important process in early learning, but it is often misunderstood in relationship to the theory and practice.
This interactive webinar will engage participants to consider the process of making documentation pedagogical.
This session will be facilitated online via Zoom and you will receive a link the day before the session takes place.
