LIVING, LEARNING, LEADING IN THE EARLY YEARS:
Contributing to Pedagogical Change
“…bearing the fruits of our connection, imagination,
curiosity, ideas and feedback”
Participants will hear how practice from the CESA Living, Learning, Leading Framework is being enacted through Early Years STEM, connections with families and communities and revitalising welcoming children and families into our Catholic Schools.
The presentations will include supported playgroups, schools transforming their transition-to-Reception approaches and STEM initiatives in early years services and schools. Participants will have the opportunity to choose the presentations they wish to attend. An optional Early Learning STEM Australia workshop will also be offered.
This symposium is for all CESA teachers, educators, Principals and other CEO and school leaders.
Key-Note Speaker - Centenary Professor Tom Lowrie
Tom Lowrie is a Centenary Professor and the Director of the STEM Education Research Centre (SERC) at the University of Canberra. He has a well-established international research profile in the discipline area of mathematics education. His 20 plus year body of work has focused on the extent to which primary-aged students use spatial reasoning and visual imagery to solve mathematics problems and the role and nature of graphics in mathematics assessment. More recently, his research has expanded to include students’ use of digital tools and dynamic imagery to solve problems.
Tom has attracted more than $11 million in nationally competitive research projects, including five ARC Discovery Grants, a Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade Government Partnerships for Development Grant and he is also leading the Early Learning STEM Australia (ELSA) pilot, funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training under the National Innovation and Science Agenda.
