Inspired by Reggio Emilia: A New Beginning

Best Practices in Early Childhood Education - Progressive Education in Practice

Created by Mary Ann Biermeier, M.Ed. - Instructional Designer


Students: 372, Price: $19.99

Students: 372, Price:  Paid

Heralded by Harvard University's Project Zero, the Reggio Emilia Approach is blend of theory and practice that is based upon decades of research in early childhood development. Founder Loris Malaguzzi designed a teaching approach which is alive, creative and emergent.

Central to this progressive approach is the image of the child as a strong and powerful player in their own education. The teacher is seen as a researcher and protagonist, creating a learning environment that is engaging and highly social. Children learn through play and are assessed through documentation. The documentation makes the learning visible and informs the practice – ultimately leading to innovations in curriculum.

Designed as an introduction to this approach, this first course will introduce two key principals: The strong image of the child as a collaborator in their own education; the environment as the third teacher – designing classrooms that support investigations and creativity and social-emotional development.

Mary Ann Biermeier M.Ed. is Managing Director of Riverbend Studios, llc.  She is a master degree educator with over 20 years in the early childhood field, an Arizona certified instructor inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach.

All learning starts with joy – we hope you will enjoy this class!

                                                Parenting Skill (10 Positive Things to Say to Your Children)

The course is lecture-based on power point slides, but questions and discussion are encouraged. I recommend that you complete assigned textbook readings prior to lecture. For further in-depth discussion of content, I recommend attending weekly Supplemental Instruction or Tutoring sessions. Many students have found it beneficial to read through the assigned reading both prior to and following lecture. Weekly assignments will also be assigned to help gauge your understanding of class content. Every effort will be made to keep to the schedule presented in the syllabus, although unforeseen emergencies may require changes. Any such changes will be announced and will be effective at the earliest reasonable opportunity.

I would like tell you something more about the course

1. It is prepared on power point slides

2. It is just like a text book which is shifted on slides

3. And the instructor made the voice over in Asian accents

4. Short course having textbook like contents

You have to dig out the points from each video and run each video by stopping again and again. You have to focus on slides and focus on the voice over. You will read the each slide and collect the main points that you want to learn.

Why I have described the above points? Because I don't want to sell the things that are not matched with your interest. Everything should be clear before enrolling in this course.


It is not like that I have wasted the time anywhere in the course. I am giving you the genuine course contents presentations. So I promise you that you will not waste your money. Also Udemy has 30 day money back guarantee and if you feel that the course is not like that you were looking, then you can take your money back.

Forest and Nature Based Early Childhood Education

Inspiration from Scandinavia

Created by Rikke Rosengren - Early Childhood Educator


Students: 17, Price: $199.99

Students: 17, Price:  Paid

This online course is based on a Danish outdoor education program with evidence from Scandinavia and the rest of the world.

Here you can learn about nature´s impact on child development, brain development and all the benefits nature and being outdoors provides.

The course evolves around the importance of nature as a healthy and stimulating environment for children's development. Nature has a unique potential as a platform for children to grow and experiment in. The course emphasises the immanent curiosity of the child and its natural need for movement and how we can optimise the conditions for children's development outdoors. It demonstrates how being outdoors with children, lends itself to creating educational environments, where there is specific focus on language and motor skills development. The possibility of both risky play and sensuous stimulation that nature provides for us, supports the health-promoting pedagogical foundation that is necessary for the healthy development of the child.

Furthermore this online education is a practical source of inspiration for school programs, teachers and families. Get more aware of nature. Be inspired to create your own nature-based environment. And learn how to bring nature to the child, if you live in the city.

We will go through 8 modules covering everything you need to know!
