    Risky Play - ONLINE Workshop

    The Association of Early Childhood Educators Ontario and Red River College have partnered to offer a Spring 2018 online workshop. The workshop content (videos, readings, links, games, discussions) is completely online and available to participants over a two-week period. Participants have complete flexibility to work through the materials at times that are most convenient for them.

    The content is from the Science of Early Child Development (SECD). SECD’s engaging, multimedia resources are used around the world by people who want to learn more about the impact of the early years on lifelong health and well-being.

    A facilitator oversees the workshop by welcoming, orienting and guiding participants.

    Risky Play

    April 19 - May 2, 2018 - Facilitator: Marc Battle

    Topics include:

    • Concept of risky play and relationship of risky play to development
    • Playground safety standards and injury prevention
    • Hurdles, challenges and opportunities
    • Emerging research on the link between risky play and children's health and well-being

    Participants will watch videos of children around the world, hear from experts discussing the topics, do short readings and play interactive review games. Participants will “meet” in online discussions, guided by a facilitator, to hear each other’s ideas, reflect on and apply what they learn.  

    The facilitator will be in touch with workshop participants to provide access information and orientation, and answer questions, approximately two days before the workshop begins.

    Participants can choose the times that are most convenient for them between the period of April 19 - May 2, 2018

     

    This is equivalent to a full day workshop or six hours of professional learning. Professional Learning Certificates will be provided by the AECEO after completion of the course.
