Trips to explore and study Reggio Emilia principles.
An in-depth field experience based at Opal School of the Portland Children’s Museum in Portland, Oregon, will be the foundation of this week-long intensive study tour. Our focus will be in mathematics, literacy and students’ social and emotional growth. The topics for our investigation include: What skills and knowledge are essential for 21st century students and teachers? What elements, organization, curricula, environments and teaching styles produce creative, meaningful and highly successful teaching and learning.

From April 14 - 20, 2013, the Lesley University Delegation joined participants from many different countries as part of the April
International Study Group to Reggio Emilia, Italy. Professors Lisa Fiore
and Joanne Szamreta led the delegation, with organizational
support from Angela Ferrario, US Liaison for Study Groups to Reggio
Emilia and in collaboration with the International Office of Reggio
Children. It was a special opportunity to join others affiliated with
Lesley University, including students, faculty members, alumni and past
participants in the Reggio Emilia Spring Institute, who have an
understanding of the Reggio Emilia approach to education and are
interested in furthering their study.
Please check back in the fall for details of next year's Reggio Emilia Study Tour to Italy. See the Reggio Course Offerings page for information about the accompanying course, which is available for one, two, or three credits.
