About the Event

This session revolves around the concept of Key Learning Areas and will offer teams an opportunity to think deeply about their environments and what they can do to enhance them.

Recommended for: This session would be great for anyone working in the Early Childhood Sector or Outside School Hours sector.

This session will explore:

  • Inspiring learning environments – we will look at and discuss lots of photos and videos of learning environments for inspiration.
  • Key Learning Areas – we will discuss what Key Learning Areas are, how to plan and design them and what is taken into consideration when planning learning spaces.
  • Language of learning – we will talk about ‘opportunities’, ‘possibilities’, ‘provocations’, ‘invitations’, ‘aesthetics’, ‘attention to detail’ and unpack what all these mean.
  • Outdoor learning programs and design – we will look well beyond ‘going outside for a run’, we will talk about how to design a well-rounded outdoor curriculum and why this is important.
  • Time, shared spaces and our curriculum – we will talk about how time and shared spaces contribute to missed opportunities for learning and will unpack ways to support learning all day.
  • Concepts for learning spaces – HEI Schools learning environments, process vs product, environments to support intrinsic motivations, intentional teaching, story tables and much more!
