Cultural awareness for educators – Part 3
This session is the third of a three-part Learning Together seminar for educators working with children in early years settings and in primary schools. In this session, you will be guided to reflect on experiences that determine the teacher’s views of students. Everyone has a past and upbringing that has shaped the way they view the world. With the increased awareness developed throughout the seminar, teachers will be able to reflect on how their experience can affect their views and how this renewed sense of awareness can allow them to grow professionally. All sessions are interactive and participants are encouraged to share their experiences and knowledge.
+ We aim to create a safe space for attendees to share their experiences and for this reason, we will not be recording this webinar +
