Reggio Emilia Inspired Dialogue / by Morgan Hogg

Drawing Open and REID

On September the 2nd 2017 the group Reggio Emilia Inspired Dialogue, REID for short, came to Massey University Drawing Open space to do and learn more about Drawing as Expanded practice with Emma Febvre-Richards. This group are volunteers (head teachers and academics) who orchestrate four or five professional development events per year in Wellington for ECE teachers, inspired by the pedagogy of Reggio Emilia.

Here are some pictures of the fun we had!
