A joint seminar organised by the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Pedagogy and Thomas Coram Research Unit based at the UCL Institute of Education.

About this Event

The relationship between early childhood and primary education is dominated today by the language of ‘readying’, expressing the idea that the main role of the former is to prepare young children for the latter. This seminar takes a different approach. It will look at themes and issues common to both sectors, and at how they might benefit from a dialogue based on a strong and equal relationship.

The main themes are children’s agency and participation, in the context of children’s rights. Alison Clark (Associate Professor at the University of South-Eastern Norway and Honorary Senior Research Fellow at UCL Institute of Education (IOE)), well known for her work on listening to young children, will relate these themes to her current research on slow knowledge and slow pedagogy. Yana Manyukhina (Research Associate at the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Pedagogy (0-11 Years) (HHCP), IOE) and Professor Dominic Wyse (Founding Director, HHCP, IOE) will then outline the HHCP’s research on children’s agency and the national curriculum.

The event will be of interest to practitioners and academics alike, and will provide a pedagogical meeting place for all engaged in the education of children from birth to 11 years.
