  • "IT'S ALL A BIT TOO HARD!"  
  • ARE FAMILIES REAL PARTNERS WITH EDUCATORS OR ARE THEY MOSTLY INTERESTED ONLOOKERS?"

  • DATE:   Tuesday 8 August 2017

  • PRESENTED BY:   Anne Kennedy & Anthony Semann

COST:    $35 per person

SUITABLE FOR:  Educators working in Early Childhood & Primary School Aged Services

Do you find relationships with families hard work?  Do you seem to be running out of 'ideas' on how to engage families?  Do you sometimes feel like it's a one-way street?  In this interactive session, Anthony and Anne will raise some challenging questions and debate the realities of partnerships with families and whether or not they really matter, and if they do matter, are we there yet?

The aim is to 'stretch' your thinking about partnerships by considering the perspectives of the key stakeholders: educators, families, children and researchers.  This session will shed new light on a situation that is often surrounded by feelings of frustration, joy and everything in-between.

Participants will be supported to:

  • - Bring a more critical frame of mind to reflecting on their current practices in relation to partnerships with families.
  • - Deepen their understanding of contemporary research that promotes family partnerships.
  • - Make links between the research and the implications for practice within their setting.
  • - Explore the multiple ways in which relationships can be reimagined in order to achieve equity for all those involved.
