Winter 2023: Reflecting With Gunilla Dahlberg

Welcome to the 2023 Frog Hollow Reggio-Inspired Learning Centre Winter Conference!

We are absolutely thrilled and honoured to welcome Gunilla Dahlberg for our two-day conference.

During these two days, we will think with ideas such as:

  • Preschool and school as a democratic and public space in which children and adults live together
  • The researching and experimenting child and pedagogue
  • Progettazione – How to put a project into motion – unfolding children’s potentials and power to act
  • Pedagogical documentation in becoming

Participants will engage in exercises with Pedagogical Documentation, working with concepts of observing, documenting and analyzing findings.
