Early Years Conference: children as learning partners

Early Years Conference

After an extremely successful conference last March, the Institute of Education is delighted to present the third Early Years Conference on Thursday 16 March, London Road Campus, 09.30am – 3.00pm.   

The conference is specially designed for those working with early years children. This year, the focus will be on process of intentional teaching and children being partners in their own learning.

Conference organiser Dr Helen Bilton said: “Last year’s event saw delegates emerging feeling reinvigorated and refreshed. That is what we have planned for them this year – with a different focus.”

Comments from last year’s delegates:

“The day was thought provoking, inspiring, great resources, friendly teachers.”

“The talk was inspiring, the workshops were useful, all great ideas.”
