Early childhood education fellowship to support exploration of innovative approaches to pedagogy in STEEAM

NZCER is pleased to announce that the 2019 fellowship has been awarded to Janette Kelly-Ware for her proposal Beyond Aotearoa New Zealand: Exploring the creative and pedagogical possibilities of STEEAM through play based learning, 'working theories,' and the eyes of others. 

Janette, a lecturer in early childhood education at the University of Waikato, will use the fellowship to explore innovative international practice in play-based learning, working theories and integrated curriculum around science, technology, engineering/environmental education, arts and mathematics (STEEAM) subject areas.

The Margaret May Blackwell Travel Fellowship is awarded annually to people working in early childhood education, to enable international study that will benefit the profession in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The 2018 Fellowship was awarded to Charlotte Robertson, a teacher with the Auckland Kindergarten Association. The fellowship was used to research international responses to how early childhood teachers work with children affected by imprisonment.
