The excitement is building with 1 month to go until we welcome Ferre Laevers and Julia Moons to the South West for the TSSW Early Years Conference 2020.
Ferre is director of the Research Centre for Experiential Education based at the University of Leuven and former President-elect of the European Early Childhood Education Research Association. Most of his work is linked to the innovative ‘Experiential Education’ project (EXE) of which he was the founding father, more than 35 years ago.
In EXE, a child’s wellbeing and the intensity of his or her mental activity (involvement) is seen as a key indicator for the ‘power’ of the learning environment and a condition for ‘deep-level learning’.
Julia Moons has been part of the EXE project since 1980. As a preschool teacher she has made a major contribution to the development of practice that supports well-being and involvement in children.
This conference was established because of the Teaching Schools South West (TSSW) Early Years SLE teams’ desire to bring specialists to Exeter and ensure inspirational speakers are available to all teachers across the South West.
Tickets are still available for the Conference, priced at £80 for TSSW members | £150 for other delegates.
