Course Description:Reggio Emilia-Inspired Study Tour: Collaboration, Inspiration, and InterpretationThis experiential course will provide participants a unique opportunity to learn about the Reggio Emilia approach to Early Childhood Education, create research questions for investigation, and develop their personal and professional relationships in the process. Students in the course will meet at Lesley University prior to traveling to the Study Tour site, so to better understand the approach and to highlight perceived connections between the Reggio Emilia approach and individuals’ own contexts. As part of the formal study tour, which includes visits to classrooms, presentations by/with staff, and cultural experiences, students will network with colleagues in the field to promote collaborative work and to adapt specific ideas to our own contexts. While traveling, students and faculty will meet to process individual and shared experiences. Participants will also maintain reflective journals that may include writing, drawing, photographs, or other artifacts created during the course. The course will culminate with materials prepared for presentations and/or publication. This experience will provide an avenue for course participants to share their learning with the broader community, and will serve as documentation of our individual and group experiences.
