This session will build on our previous exploration of critical reflection, but with a focus on some of the practical implications.  We will unpack just what critical reflection looks like in practice for issues such as supervision, routines, and how we manage and support children’s choices.  There will be an opportunity to share your own stories, ask questions and hear from others.

The outcomes of the session will be:

  • understand the process of critical reflection
  • apply critical reflection to the daily program
  • explore practical examples of critical reflection
  • hear stories of practice from other services

When: Wednesday 13 February 2019
Time: Start at 6:30pm to 8:00pm
Cost: NO cost for Rural and Remote eligible recipients. 
RSVP: By 11 February 2019 
The platform we are using for this Online study group is ZOOM. You will receive the link for your ZOOM session and learning materials before the event. 

Conversation Host

Stephen Gallen is a qualified Early Childhood Teacher, with an undergraduate degree focussing on critical theory and developmental psychology, and post-graduate qualifications in Early Childhood Education. He has nearly 30 years of experience as an educator and in leadership and education roles across long day care, primary and preschool, school aged care and in-home care, working extensively with children from birth to 6 years.  Stephen’s focus is on supporting and empowering educators and organisations around curriculum and pedagogy, and 'demystifying' these sometimes complicated-sounding processes so that they are accessible and authentic.


This is the first of three online workshops which will explore what critical reflection is, and importantly, how incorporate this into your work.  The follow up workshops will also be online and will be on the 3rd of April and 5th of June 2019.
