Early Childhood Research symposium

The 11th MIT Early Childhood Research symposium held in May 2014 showcased staff, student and invited centres who presented their research in early childhood education to the Manukau Institute of Technology community of practice (students, professionals and academics). Invited graduating students were chosen to submit an abstract to present their research project.

The theme for this symposium was 'Curriculum and Transformation: the sum of everything we do.' The invited keynote speaker was Associate Professor Missy Morton, University of Canterbury. Associate Professor Morton's research interests include disability studies in education, discourses of research in education, qualitative and participatory research methodologies, initial teacher education and professional learning for inclusive education, curriculum, pedagogy and assessment for inclusive education and sociology of special education.
