(10 PDPs) With an emphasis on the quality of space and its potential to promote meaningful relations and exchanges between adults and children, this year’s institute will focus on the library and studio. Drawing on the children’s interests, their home-life, and the traditions of the city, these programs are designed to provide the opportunity for aesthetic experiences and cognitive and social development.
Presentations will underscore the importance of creating literacy-rich environments that stimulate the child’s imagination, support their sense of individuality and community, and encourage research and meaning-making. Participants will engage in direct experiences to explore concretely these two environments, the library and the studio.
