Dynamic Learning and Practice. HMIE Early Years Good Practice Conference (December 3, 2007). Conference Report
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
This is the third in a series of Early Years Good Practice conferences provided by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education (HMIE). The purpose of these is to support early years practitioners from pre-school and the early years of primary school to share ideas and learn from one another about the practical aspects of managing the continuity of children's learning from pre-school provision into primary school. Staff from primary schools, nurseries and education authorities have delivered seminars at each conference. They have provided delegates with first hand information about good teaching practice. The keynote address for this conference and for last year's was given by Professor Ferre Laevers from the University of Leuven in Belgium. His research into how children learn and how learning can be monitored and extended by the adults around them has been central to many developments within Scotland and in many other countries across the world. His enthusiastic commitment to the development of early years' services has been recognised and welcomed warmly by delegates.
