About this event
This is the ninth in a series of 10 webinars in 2020 inspired by Wendy Lee's new book, co-written with Margaret Carr, called Learning Stories in Practice.
This is two-part webinar. The first part will be a discussion on 'Keeping learning in the foreground: the use of both paper-based and e-portfolios.' The second part will be on how to run workshops in your own setting, following the Learning Story Workshop, Chapter 9 in the book.
"Assessments in narrative format can offer plotlines that are designed to resonate with other situations and circumstances and to illustrate multiple possible actions and futures. Sociocultural views of learning and assessment enable us to take account of this complexity." (Bronwen Cowie and Margaret Carr, 2016: 396)
Wendy will describe workshops and then allow a discussion period where attendees can suggest questions to ask Wendy Lee and Margaret Carr, both of whom will lead our last webinar in this series in October, 2020.
The seminal work on Learning Stories by Professor Margaret Carr and Wendy Lee was first published by SAGE in 2001. That widely acclaimed approach to assessment has since gained a huge international following.
Wendy's new book, "Learning Stories in Practice," features a variety of examples of real-life learning stories from around the world. It provides clear, practical advice on how to initiate and create learning stories and why they are valuable. The authors show readers how to write stories that capture the excitement of each young child’s journey through the early years and how to develop a deep professional understanding of the learning that takes place during this time in their lives. You can buy the book here.
