Presentations by the Team

An important aspect of the research journey is presenting our ideas, initial findings and explorations to other teachers and academics. In this way we can get feedback on our ideas and activities, and also begin to impact on teachers’ ways of thinking and teaching in other ECE places around New Zealand.

On this page of the site we will continue to list our presentations and attach our PowerPoint presentations as PDF files for your interest.

If you have comments or questions about any of these presentations please contact Judith at judith.duncan@canterbury.ac.nz
