Summary of Teaching & Learning Context The content is delivered through online synchronous and asynchronous delivery. On campus delivery was restricted due to Covid 19. Students are working in the sector of early years education and care they are encouraged to reflect and evaluate their professional experience. The module is very much focusing on specific areas of practice within the context of early years education and care settings. The following key documents underpin the content Siolta National Quality Standards, Aistear National Curriculum Framework and Tusla Quality and Regulatory Framework. The assessment strategy was to give students the opportunity to explore theory and practice in a meaningful context. The assignment, particularly Section 2 mirrored a very real life professional practice experience. Using a Problem Based Learning (PBL) approach afforded students the chance to identify a problem in promoting one or all of the topics movement, maths and music in their daily practice, develop a solution and reflect on the impact of the solution. Presentations were delivered in small groups on Microsoft Teams using the principles of Wagner and Traynor model of Communities of Practice which is embedded throughout the programme delivery. Collaborative learning and peer reflection are critical aspects of quality development within early years education and care settings.
