Join us for a memorable evening of story sharing, celebrating practice, networking with colleagues, and taking part in a range of unique hands-on experiences, all within the bush setting of the Lea Scout Centre.
Listen to a variety of short PechaKucha style presentations from Early and Middle Childhood Educators and Leaders who share their stories about successfully working through challenges and achieving goals. Topics include – working under a distributed leadership model, engaging children around the campfire, the joys and challenges of taking on a new role, diversity in leadership and examining risky play as a catalyst for engagement.
A PechaKucha presentation utilises imagery and spoken word to create a meaningful, and concise presentation. Each presentation goes for precisely 6 minutes 40 seconds, broken down into 20 images that are displayed for 20 seconds each, connected seamlessly with the presenter’s narrative. This unique style will provide you with an engaging insight into pedagogy, with the hope to inspire, and leave you wanting to know more!
You will also have the opportunity to take part in exploring a range of hands-on experiences such as:
- making fire with flint
- cooking on the open flame
- whittling with knives
- pyrography with wood burning tools
The evening will be divided into two parts, firstly eight PechaKucha style presentations will be delivered back-to-back over the first hour, with the second hour comprising of networking, hands-on opportunities, and supper. We are aiming to deliver this event outdoors in front of a fire or two (weather permitting), so please bring along warm clothing, and even a blanket to ensure you are comfortable.
A light supper will be provided, along with mulled wine warmed on the fire.
