Loose Parts Play - Webinar

Nesa Accredited PD

Many educators are aware of loose parts and have incorporated them into their program, but how much do we understand about loose parts theory?

This session will unpack the Theory of Loose Parts to enable you to:

-Understand how loose parts can promote discovery, exploration, investigation and problem solving through opportunities for inquiry based learning
-Translate the theory into practice to promote children’s active involvement in their learning
-Reflect on the use of learning environments to support the use of Loose Parts

NOTE: Teachers in Victoria, QLD, WA, SA, NT, and Tasmania who complete this course will be provided with a certificate and are able to use this course towards their maintenance of Registration requirements.
