Creating the pedagogical documentation around an early childhood program is an important part of the work of an early childhood teacher. Creating meaningful, compliant, time efficient, community-relevant documentation is a huge challenge for all teachers. The TLN has developed a 3 part program to support teachers create pedagogical documentation that works for them.
This program contends that there is no one way of documenting that is "right". This isn't a program that teaches a formula for documentation. Rather, it provides information and frameworks for deciding what meets regulatory requirements, is right for your community and can be done in a reasonable amount of time.
Part one looks at what's required of documentation. Part two is about finding a documentation method that works for you. Part three explores how to explain your documentation to families, employers and regulatory authorities.
The full program is still being developed and piloted. Extra sessions will appear on this page over the course of 2017.
The TLN is supported by the AEU Victoria Branch and the IEU Victoria Tasmania Branch
