20 February 2018: BECERA Conference - Creativity and Critical Thinking in Early Years

Thu, 20/02/2020 - 09:00 - 16:00

Booking is now open for British Early Childhood Education Research Association's (BECERA) 8th conference.

Bringing a wealth of expertise to the conference, keynote speakers Bernadette Duffy and Di Chilvers will explore how developing a creative curriculum will be key to developing higher order thinking skills and realising the power in young children to innovate and critically evaluate fast moving developments. Several other speakers will also present on how we embed creative approaches into pedagogy, CPD and research in early years.

BECERA 2018 will seek to explore and address three key questions:

  • How might creativity and critical thinking, key elements in the Characteristics of Effective Learning, be better embedded in pedagogical practice?
  • What are the professional challenges for securing high quality creativity and critical thinking in early years curriculum and pedagogy and how might these challenges be addressed in initial and continuing professional development?
  • How might research explore and promote the development of more creative and critical thinking in children throughout the foundation years and early primary schooling?
