Familiar, curious, or have no idea what the updated BC Early Learning Framework is all about? This six-week community of practice is for you! All levels of experience are encouraged to participate, share insights, raise questions, and offer support as we explore the BC Early Learning Framework’s call to ‘live and learn together’. In this six week course, participants will use the Living Inquiries outlined in the BC ELF, to examine ideas about education, connect practice to theory, and find inspiration.
Well-being and Belonging.
Others, Materials and the World.
Communication and Literacies.
Identities, Social Responsibility and Diversity.
Examine in detail each of the Learning Pathways.
Connect each Pathway to both teaching practices and theories about education.
Relate Pathways to classroom experiences.
Share and discuss ideas that helped to create the ELF, including Indigenous Ways of Knowing and Learning.
Suitable for ECE students, parents, adult instructors/administrators, intermediate and experienced early care and learning professionals working with children of all ages, from infants/toddlers to school age children, including children with extra support needs.
