The Thomas Coram Research Unit (TCRU) hosts a weekly seminar series, where invited speakers present work of relevance to the research interests of the unit. Last Tuesday Dr Alison Clark presented the initial findings of a two year study: ‘Slow knowledge and the unhurried child’.
The study, funded by the Froebel Trust, explored the contemporary context of early childhood education and alternative approaches to the discourse of measurement. It also explores where ‘slow practices’ are happening now and in the past.
In this talk, Dr Clark talked about definitions of slow knowledge and slow pedagogies. She will raise questions about the possibilities and challenges of placing time, as well as the spatial dimensions of early learning, centre stage.
