Children learning to live together in a diverse community: Culturally Responsive Pedagogy in Reggio Emilia inspired Early Learning Settings

Professor Irabinna-Lester Rigney, Professor Robert Hattam & Dr Jamie Sisson

ChildrenThe aim of this project is to examine how educators enact culturally responsive pedagogy in South Australian Early Learning settings engaging with Reggio Emilia education principles. Specifically this will entail a multi-sited action research project in four Early Learning Sites augmented by analysis of policy texts, and additional evidence about site structures and culture. The project will develop an Australian theory for early childhood culturally responsive pedagogy that draws on International and Australian Indigenous Studies, Reggio Emilia studies, New Pedagogy Studies, and new empirical work in educational settings.
