In 2016 we kicked off the #RadicalChildcare learning community to open up themes of the #RadicalChildcare project for discussion, hosting conversations around the research and ideas behind the project as it grows. Our first four were an eclectic mix of multimedia and hosts, check out the previous sessions and content here. We are excited to launch a new series of learning circle sessions this Spring as we continue to develop and grow the #RadicalChildcare movement.
The #RadicalChildcare Learning Circle is a 21st Century multimedia book club.
It's a place where we can digest and interrogate current thinking, academic research, TED talks and podcasts in a supportive informal community of learners, experts and the curious. Join the #RadicalChildcare Facebook group and look out for learning community meetups
To kick off our spring season of learning circles, we will be looking at some of the interesting work and writing from the Innovation Unit, a social enterprise that grows new solutions to complex social challenges. Some of their recent work has explored the role of 21st Century Children’s Centres as part of a broader conversation about infrastructure for early years development. In this learning circle, we will take a look at some early reflections on their work in Australia in order to get the conversation started around what we can learn for our local context here in Birmingham.
We invite you to familiarise yourself with the Innovation Unit’s reports and blog post via the links below in advance of the session. We have also included some additional links for further inspiration and welcome you to share good practice you have come across to enhance the conversation.
