This communication aims to offer an initial outline of the event - First InternationalSummer School in Reggio Emilia - that wants to be an occasion for encounter,dialogue, study, research among people from different cultures and from different experiences.
The Preschools and Infant Toddler Centres, Istituzione - Municipality of Reggio Emilia, Italy are world wide recognized as high quality educational experiences. The town of Reggio Emilia has always invested in early childhood services since the beginning of this pedagogical experience after the second world war. Within this experience, a pedagogical and cultural project has been developed that has continued to represent a point of reference of intense vitality, research and innovation, not only for the town of Reggio Emilia, but also at national and international level.
The aspect of Reserch for Innovation that characterizes the pedagogical experience of Reggio Emilia has been appreciated in the world and its study in
depth has encountered the interest of many teachers, pedagogistas, atelieristas,educators, researchers and administrators in the Educational field.
Reggio Children - the Reggio Emilia experience has been receiving numerous requests at national and international level to be studied in depth for a period thatcould last more than a week.
Consequentely Reggio Children has decided to organize, for the first time, a two weeks International Summer School in Reggio Emilia - July 2010 that will offer to the participants the possibility to go deeper into the organizational structures,contexts, contents, strategies, study and research of the Reggio Emilia philosophy.
A Summer School in Reggio Emilia will also offer opportunities to study in depth the experience of the Municipal infant-toddler centres and preschools through different modalities of professional development occasions.Through the revisiting of past experiences with study groups and dialogues
with colleagues at internation level we have noticed that there is an increase of demands for having more time available to stay in Reggio Emilia and to study the Approach.
We thought that a Summer School in Reggio Emilia that lasts two weeks could be a strategy of professional development that could have the purpose to develop and support a deeper knowledge and understanding about different topics that will be studied.
A bibliography of texts and articles will be given in advance to the participants before coming to Reggio Emilia.
The texts should be read and studied in order to further develop thoughts,reflections and questions that then in Reggio Emilia, will find a place capable to be listened to and valued.
