Latest EECERA book now available: Teacher Education and Play Pedagogy
Posted 9th April 2022
Written in association with the European Early Childhood Education Research Association (EECERA), this is the latest title in the Towards an Ethical Praxis in Early Childhood book series. Edited by Eleni Loizou and Jeffrey Trawick-Smith.
Play holds a crucial role in early childhood education in relation to its importance as a context and a teaching practice for the support of children’s learning and development. This book focuses on how to prepare teachers for supporting play and ensuring young children gain the maximum benefit from it, examining both the roles that teachers can fulfil in this capacity, and how teacher educators can incorporate this into teacher preparation. Drawing on theories such as improvisation, narrative form and play-responsive teaching, this book explores the potential for teacher involvement in play and how to prepare them for this professionally, as well as developing their own play skills.
It is a valuable text for early childhood education undergraduate and graduate courses, for early childhood education researchers, as well as an essential reference for professional development programs and seminars.
