Series: Learning Stories in Practice

Presenter: Wendy Lee

In 2020 Educa presented a 10-webinar series by Learning Stories luminary, Wendy Lee from New Zealand, on the book she co-wrote with Margaret Carr, “Learning Stories in Practice.”

Thank you so much for providing such deep understandings, research and questioning in your early childhood webinars. I was hesitant about the quality of the webinars (I have been to enough PD courses where I walk out thinking it didn't give me anything new or thought provoking) - but your webinars are thought provoking and well laid out to progress thinking... It has truly been refreshing to be inspired and provoked as a teacher from your webinars and I thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise with me.

I wanted to thank Educa for making these webinars available. I am teaching Cert III in Early Childhood Education and Care in a high school setting. I worked as a kindergarten teacher for years but I am loving keeping up to date with the latest movements and ideas in early childhood now that I am out of that world. I will actually present some of your webinars to my class to open their minds to what different services are doing. Congratulations to these amazing presenters and Educa!
