Transformative teaching practices in early childhood education.

Ngā Hurihanga ako kōhungahunga: Transformative teaching practices in early childhood education

Editors: Dr Anne Grey (AUT University) and Beverley Clark.
Released: 2013.

This book introduces current innovations in early childhood education teaching practice in New Zealand and discusses various aspects of pedagogical practice in ways designed to both provoke and inform the student of early childhood education.

Inherently complex and involving many facets shaped by context, pedagogical practice in early childhood education is always evolving and subjective in nature. With this text the editors aim to engage the teacher/learner in recognising and responding to the complexity of good pedagogical practice, informing teacher choices about:

  • Philosophical approaches
  • Decision making about curriculum
  • Ethical approaches to relationships building
  • Interactions with children and their families.
