Practical Approaches to Programming and Documentation
“Getting an audience is hard. Sustaining an audience is hard. It demands a consistency of thought, of purpose and action over a long period of time.” – Bruce Springsteen
So much of our time is spent planning and documenting children’s learning that sometimes we ask: who are we doing it for? This interactive and thought-provoking workshop will identify who your audience is and how best to communicate with them. We will explore how to capture and sustain their interest as well as visually representing the ideas of educators and children. This is an essential workshop for those wanting their audience to engage with their planning, program and documentation.
