10:36am Monday 4th November 2013 in News
Loris Malaguzzi presented his speech, ‘Malaguzzi and Contemporary Early Years Alternatives: Lessons from Iceland and Reggio Emilia’, drawing in people from around the globe.
Loris Malaguzzi grew up in Italy and is credited for the development of Reggio Emilia schools.
Senior lecturer in Early Childhood Studies at the University of Winchester, Dr Richard House, said: “The Reggio Emilia ‘model’ of early years education attracts increasing interest and admiration from across the globe.
“With contemporary early childhood education being an arena of such controversy and change, this is a highly opportune moment to explore, in depth, the underpinning pedagogical philosophy of Reggio’s leading thinker, Loris Malaguzzi.”
The conference was formally opened by the vice chancellor, Professor Joy Carter.
