Early Childhood Education Workshop "Starting from the Child: curriculum, observation, and assessment in early childhood". The Department of Primary Education within the Faculty of Education is pleased to announce a workshop on early childhood education.  The workshop will be held on Monday and  Tuesday 30 and 31 August 2004 between 08:30 and 13:00 on both days, at the University of Malta. The workshop will be led by three members of staff from the Institute for Early Childhood Studies,
School of Education at the Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand: Carmen Dalli, Val Podmore and Sarah Te One.  The workshop is of particular interest to early childhood educators and members of staff who are working directly with 3 to 6 year old children as well as administrators who are responsible for the education and well-being of very young children. In small groups, participants will have the opportunity to reflect upon and discuss crucial issues related to the curriculum, observation and assessment in early childhood education. The registration fee for the workshop is Lm20 per person. This covers the fees for the speakers, coffee breaks and materials which will be distributed during the workshop. Early registration is encouraged since the number of participants will be limited.
