The Inspired EC team is passionate about encouraging and promoting the natural connection children have to Nature. We have developed an annual Pedagogy in Nature Conference that continues to evolve every year as we bring experts from around the world to share their knowledge and skills about children and nature.
We aim to introduce an international world renowned speaker with Niki Buchan, who is known as an Australian guru on Nature Play and a strong advocate for children, as our keynote speakers. The workshop will be presented by the keynote speakers as well as another experienced member of the Inspired EC team. This introduces a valuable global as well as a local perspective to our conferences. These one day conferences will be presented throughout Australia and if time allows in New Zealand as well.
In 2013 Claire Warden from Scotland shared her inspirational Talking and Thinking Floorbook documentation method. In 2014 we bring you Rusty Keeler from USA!
